Cement Replacement Materials from the Author: Ali Akbar Ramezanianpour. The aim of this book is to present the latest findings in the properties and application of Supplementary Cementing Materials and blended cements currently used in the world in concrete. Sustainability is an important issue all over the world. Carbon dioxide emission has been a serious problem in the world due to the greenhouse effect. Today many countries agreed to reduce the emission of CO2. Many phases of cement and concrete technology can affect sustainability. Cement and concrete industry is responsible for the production of 7% carbon dioxide of the total world CO2 emission. The use of supplementary cementing materials (SCM), design of concrete mixtures with optimum content of cement and enhancement of concrete durability are the main issues towards sustainability in concrete industry.

Calphad Calculation Of Phase Diagrams from the Author: Nigel Saunders. This monograph acts as a benchmark to current achievements in the field of Computer Coupling of Phase Diagrams and Thermochemistry, often called CALPHAD which is an acronym for Computer CALculation of PHAse Diagrams. It also acts as a guide to both the basic background of the subject area and the cutting edge of the topic, combining comprehensive discussions of the underlying physical principles of the CALPHAD method with detailed descriptions of their application to real complex multi-component materials. Approaches which combine both thermodynamic and kinetic models to interpret non-equilibrium phase transformations are also reviewed.

The Role Of Cement Industry In The Economic Development Of Pakistan from the Author: Najabat Ali. The objective of the research study is to evaluate the contribution of cement industry in the economic development of Pakistan. The study is basically a historical research and it covers all the developments made in the cement industry of Pakistan since its inception. The study reveals the importance of the cement sector for any economy by highlighting the major contributions of the industry in the economic development of Pakistan. The contribution of economic development of cement industry in the economic development is measured by the value addition of cement sector to Gross Domestic Product (GDP), employment opportunities created by the sector, receipts from exports, taxes paid to government and all revenues generated by the industry. The study reveals that the cement industry plays a key role in the economic development of Pakistan. The contribution of cement industry is very positive for not only the manufacturing sector but also for the overall economic development of Pakistan. The cement industry of Pakistan used to be a very tiny industry but it grew with the passage of time and ultimately it entered in the global market. The industry contributes in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), it creates employment opportunities for thousands of people and it creates huge revenue for the government in the form of taxes. The cement industry of Pakistan attracted not only domestic investors but also foreign investors. At the end of the study, a critical evaluation of the cement industry, however discloses some major weaknesses of the industry. The industry’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities are also analyzed through SWOT analysis

The Role Of Ecological Chemistry In Pollution Research And Sustainable Development from the Author: Ali Mufit Bahadir. Sustainable Development has become the leading concept of the 21 century. It describes a development, which agrees with the needs of the present generation but does not endanger the chances of the coming generations to satisfy also their needs. ‚ÄúSustainable development‚ÄĚ has become an important general goal for all fields of life like economy, ecology and social balance. The development and shaping of our future has been discussed internationally like on the summits of the Conferences in Rio and in Johannesburg. But this is also a topic on national base in various countries. Leading authorities in various fields of economy and politics have also accepted this concept. Although the concept of sustainable development has been generally accepted, there are still problems how to achieve and evaluate these general goals. It is clear that the definitions about the prime needs vary from man to man, from country to country and from continent to continent. But pollution does not respect national borders. Therefore, it is necessary to develop the politics of economy, ecology and social demands by a synergistic way that they are strengthened by each other. If it is not possible to stop tendencies, which threaten the future quality of life, the cost demands of societies will dramatically increase and negative tendencies will become irreversible.

Durability Of Strain Hardening Fibre Reinforced Cement Based Composites Shcc from the Author: Gideon P.A.G. van Zijl. Strain-Hardening Fibre-Reinforced Cement-Based Composites (SHCC) were named after their ability to resist increased tensile force after crack formation, over a significant tensile deformation range. The increased resistance is achieved through effective crack bridging by fibres, across multiple cracks of widths in the micro-range. Whether these small crack widths are maintained under sustained, cyclic or other load paths, and whether the crack width limitation translates into durability through retardation of ingress of moisture, gas and other deleterious matter, are scrutinized in this book by evaluation of test results from several laboratories internationally. The durability of SHCC under mechanical, chemical, thermal and combined actions is considered, both for the composite and the fibre types typically used in SHCC. The compilation of this state-of-the-art report has been an activity of the RILEM TC 208-HFC, Subcommittee 2: Durability, during the committee life 2005-2009.
