Sustainable Concrete Made with Ashes and Dust from Different Sources Book Review:

There are several types of ashes and dust which are generated in large volumes and they can create serious environmental issues when disposed. Utilization of such materials not only reduces the burden on the environment, but also reduces the cost of concrete/construction materials, by being used as partial replacement of either cement or fine/coarse aggregates or both. Sustainable Concrete Made with Ashes and Dust from Different Sources focuses on the individual materials and addresses material characterization, their role in the strength and durability of construction materials, and structural applications. Each chapter reflects the current state-of-the-art in terms of the effective and efficient use of the material. Types of ashes covered are Coal Fly Ash, Coal Bottom Ash, Bagasse Ash, MSW Ash, Red Mud, Waste Marble Dust, Sewage Sludge Ash, and Cement Kiln Dust. This book is useful for civil engineers in the design and development of sustainable concrete by utilizing such types of ashes, and researchers involved in the design and formulation of new cementitious materials. Focuses on different types of ashes derived from various sources for use in the development of sustainable concrete Discusses the economic and environmental impacts, normative restrictions, and implementation in codes and standards related to the use of these by-products/wastes in concretes Includes coverage of the impact of dust from construction and demolition wastes

Wider Application of Additions in Self compacting Concrete Book Review:

Compared to normally vibrated concrete (NVC), self-compacting concrete (SCC) possesses enhanced qualities and improves productivity and working conditions due to the elimination of compaction. SCC generally has a higher powder content than NVC and thus it is necessary to replace some of the cement by additions to achieve an economical and durable concrete. The established benefits of using low volumes of fly ash in SCC, high volumes of fly ash in NVC and the search for uses of waste glass led to the research on the possibilities of use higher fly ash contents than hitherto and ground glass as an addition in SCC whilst maintaining satisfactory properties. Mix design methods, tests, target properties and constituent materials were selected. This was followed by investigating the influence of fly ash and ground glass on the mortar fraction of the SCC and then using these results to produce concrete mixes with the target fresh properties. Hardened concrete of these mixes were measured and the relationships between these investigated. The results show that for constant filling ability of the SCC, replacement of cement with fly ash or ground glass requires an increase in water/powder ratio and a reduction in superplasticiser dosage. Both additions degraded the passing ability, consistence retention and hardened properties but not to a prohibitive extent. SCC with up 80% cement replaced by fly ash or glass volume ratio of 6.4% is possible and the material properties of SCC are similar to those of NVC. Also the UCL method of mix design was extended to higher coarse aggregate contents and different additions. The project can lead to the use of higher volume fly ash and ground glass in SCC, thus widening the types of additions available for SCC, saving landfill and reduce CO2 emissions by the use of less cement.

Concrete Solutions 2011 Book Review:

The Concrete Solutions series of International Conferences on Concrete Repair began in 2003, with a conference held in St. Malo, France in association with INSA Rennes, followed by the second conference in 2006 ( with INSA again, at St. Malo, France), and the third conference in 2009 (in Padova and Venice, in association with the University of Padova). Now in 2011, the event is being held in Dresden in Germany and has brought together some 112 papers from 33 countries. Whereas electrochemical repair tended to dominate the papers in earlier years, new developments in structural strengthening with composites have been an increasingly important topic, with a quarter of the papers now focusing on this area. New techniques involving Near Surface Mounted (NSM) carbon fibre rods, strain hardening composites, and new techniques involving the well established carbon fibre and polyimide wrapping and strengthening systems are presented. Seventeen papers concentrate on case studies which are all-important in such conferences, to learn about what works (and what doesn’t work) on real structures. Thirteen papers are devoted to new developments in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). Other topics include service life modelling, fire damage, surface protection methods and coatings, patch repair, general repair techniques and whole life costing. This book is essential reading for anyone engaged in the concrete repair field, from engineers, to academics and students and also to clients, who, as the end user, are ultimately responsible for funding these projects and making those difficult decisions about which system or method to use.
