Biological cell surveillance: implication on construction cell

Shelke, Mayur and Abeysekera, Vasantha (2018) Biological cell surveillance: implication on construction cell. In: 10th International Conference on Construction in the 21st Century (CITC-10) , 2-4 July 2018, Colombo, Sri Lanka.


The near flawless replication of the biological cells is often attributed to the Biological Cell Cycle Control Mechanism (BCCM) to develop a complex multi-structural functional element. Central to this success is the checkpoints and the surveillance mechanism of the cell. This paper, inspired by such perfection of cellular replication investigates this mechanism to develop further insights on replication of construction cells with a special focus on the biological cell surveillance mechanism. This led to the synthesis of three concepts, namely, process stress, process memory and distress signaling. Application of these concepts has been considered as a means of overcoming the quality problems encountered in a tunnel construction project. It is argued that the application of these concepts using the RGR framework during the tunnel slab construction could have mitigated the adverse quality issues by arresting the growth of defective construction cells.
