Ambient (outdoor) air pollution

Background. Outdoor air pollution is a major environmental health problem affecting everyone in low-, middle-, and high-income countries. Ambient (outdoor) air pollution in both cities and rural areas was estimated to cause 4.2 million premature deaths worldwide per year in 2016; this mortality is due to exposure to small particulate matter of 2.5 microns or less in diameter (PM 2.5), which

Structure Design - Corrosion Protection Measures

The permeability of HPC is significantly lower than that of ordinary concrete. Lower permeability concrete reduces the ability of chlorides to attack the reinforcing steel and cause corrosion. HPC can also aid in the mitigation of ASR/DEF through the reduction of total alkali content and reduced heat generation.

Health co-benefits from air pollution and mitigation costs

The health co-benefits of mitigation have been explored previously. The major gaps in the current literature are a failure to look at co-benefits by region, which is important given the range of different allocations of mitigation burdens and the absence of an evaluation of the co-benefits relative to mitigation costs for the 1·5°C target.

Alkali-aggregate reaction (AAR) is only one of the many factors that might be fully or partly responsible for the deterioration and premature loss in serviceability of concrete infrastructure. Two types of AAR reaction are currently recognized depending on the nature of the reactive mineral; alkali-silica reaction (ASR) involves various types of reactive silica (SiO2) minerals and alkali
