Waste Materials Used in Concrete Manufacturing Excerpt :

The environmental aspects involved in the production and use of cement, concrete and other building materials are of growing importance. CO2 emissions are 0.8-1.3 ton/ton of cement production in dry process. SO2 emission is also very high, but is dependent upon the type of fuel used. Energy consumption is also very high at 100-150 KWT/ton of cement produced. It is costly to erect new cement plants. Substitution of waste materials will conserve dwindling resources, and will avoid the environmental and ecological damages caused by quarrying and exploitation of the raw materials for making cement. To some extent, it will help to solve the problem otherwise encountered in disposing of the wastes. Partial replacement of clinker or portland cement by slag, fly ash, silica fume and natural rock minerals illustrates these aspects. Partial replacement by natural materials that require little or no processing, such as pozzolans, calcined clays, etc., saves energy and decreases emission of gases. The output of waste materials suitable as cement replacement (slags, fly ashes, silica fumes, rice husk ash, etc.) is more than double that of cement production. These waste materials can partly be used, or processed, to produce materials suitable as aggregates or fillers in concrete. These can also be used as clinker raw materials, or processed into cementing systems. New grinding and mixing technology will make the use of these secondary materials simpler. Developments in chemical admixtures: superplasticizers, air entraining agents, etc., help in controlling production techniques and, in achieving the desired properties in concrete. Use of waste products is not only a partial solution to environmental and ecological problems; it significantly improves the microstructure, and consequently the durability properties of concrete, which are difficult to achieve by the use of pure portland cement. The aim is not only to make the cements and concrete less expensive, but to provide a blend

Recycled Aggregates Excerpt :

"With the rapid rise in our needs and requirements, the amount of waste generated by modern cities is also increasing at an unprecedented rate. This problem is global in nature and most countries around the world need appropriate waste management strategies. These measures include disposal and the 3Rs (reduce, reuse, and recycle). Each of these strategies has its own share of pros and cons. An increasing emphasis is being placed on the application of the 3Rs, especially from the environmental perspective. Construction & demolition (C & D) waste is generated when new infrastructure is built and/or older structures are demolished or renovated. Hundreds of millions of tons of such waste are generated worldwide annually, making it one of the most significant waste generating activities in the world. One way to take care of a significant fraction of this waste is as recycled aggregates (RA), wherein the waste is crushed to the dimensions of coarse and fine aggregates and is used for various activities, most notably in manufacturing of concrete. Other uses may include landfilling, manufacturing of tiles, bricks, pavement blocks, etc. Recently, other types of wastes such as used PET bottles have also been studied as a source of recycled aggregates. This book deals with the various socio-economic, technical, environmental, and policy issues related to the application of various types of recycled aggregates in different countries around the world. This is a continually evolving area of applied research which needs further emphasis not only from researchers, but planners and regulators as well"--

Smart Cities and Machine Learning in Urban Health Excerpt :

The perception of smart cities encompasses a strategy that uses different types of technologies, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning and in which, through the internet of things (IoT) and sensor-based data collection, the strategy extrapolates information using insights gained from that data to manage or monitor or track assets, resources, and services efficiently in an urban area. Both these models deeply affect the localities where they are applied and can create together immense possibilities for urban recovery, better quality of life, physical and mental health protection, and economic and social redevelopment. Smart Cities and Machine Learning in Urban Health promotes interdisciplinary work that develops and illustrates the concept of resilience in relation to smart city and machine learning. The book examines the ability of an area and its communities to recover quickly from difficulties; the rigidness and resistance of an area and its communities to possible crisis; the ability of an area, its communities, infrastructure, and business to spring back into shape; and the responsiveness and mitigation towards the crisis with a special look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The research’s theoretical foundation rests on a wide range of non-architectural sources, primarily AI, sociology, urban studies, and technological development, but it explores everything on cases taken from real cities, thus transforming them into pieces of architectural interest. Covering topics such as carbon emissions, digital healthcare systems, and urban transformation, this book is an essential resource for graduate and post-graduate students, policymakers, researchers, university faculty, engineers, public management, hospital administration, professors, and academicians.
