The Development of the Construction and Demolition Waste Dynamic Model

Abstract—With the higher amount of buildings and infrastructures in Bangkok, Thailand, the number of construction and demolition (C&D) waste is increasing continuously. These wastes, if not completely recycled, will create the environmental problems. This research paper concentrates on the use of a system dynamics modeling technique to develop a C&D waste recycling model. Data and related relationships were generated to develop the simulated equations to simulate the model to reflect real practices of the construction industry in Bangkok, Thailand. The simulation results reveal the improved C&D waste recycled over time.

Index Terms—Construction and demolition waste, recycling, system dynamics modeling
