Waste Materials and By-Products in Concrete (Engineering Materials)

By

Rafat Siddique 

Description

The amount and variety of waste that humanity dumps in landfill sites is nothing short of a scandal, believes Rafat Siddique, of Deemed University in Patiala, India. Instead, we ought to be building new homes out of it! Siddique shows in this important book that many non-hazardous waste materials and by-products which are landfilled, can in fact be used in making concrete and similar construction materials.

Reviews

“Non-hazardous waste materials and by-products which are mostly landfilled can be used in making concrete and similar construction materials. This book gives a summary of this usage: one chapter is devoted to each material, comprising an introduction, chemical and physical properties, usage potential, and the impact of the material on the various properties of concrete. The waste materials and by-products covered in the book are; granulated blast furnace slag, metakaolin, waste and recycled plastics, scrap-tire, waste glass, coal fly ash, rice husk ash, municipal solid waste ash, wood ash, volcanic ash, cement kiln dust and foundry sand.”
