"ASSESS MATERIAL PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE USING COMBINED

The aim of this research is to assess the material properties of concrete like modulus of elasticity, compressive strength, and Poisson’s ratio using various nondestructive Testing (NDT) methods like Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity (UPV) and Rebound Hammer (RH). Assessment of material properties of concrete is very important as they are used for structural design process.

Environmental impact of concrete - Wikipedia

The environmental impact of concrete, its manufacture and applications, are complex.Some effects are harmful; others welcome. Many depend on circumstances. A major component of concrete is cement, which has its own environmental and social impacts and contributes largely to those of concrete.. The cement industry is one of the main producers of carbon dioxide, a potent greenhouse gas.
