Views on the current topics by Dr J D Bapat


  1. Concrete has long been recognized for its durability and performance as a structural element. However, its insulating benefits are gaining praise from the building experts. The concepts of life-cycle cost and assessment are increasingly used to analyze energy use and costs. The key to concrete’s insulating power is its capacity to absorb, store and gradual release of heat. Dr J D Bapat: http://jdbapat.livejournal.com

  2. *Pollution Cleaning Concrte: The Italian firm Italcementi developed a cement that cleans the surrounding environment. The cement is called TX Active. The concrete contains cement which has a semiconductor catalyst, namely titanium dioxide added to it. The catalyst assists photo catalytic breaking of the polluting gases into elements. A busy street in the Italian city Segrate, near Milan is being constructed using TX Active. Italcementi claims it has reduced nitric oxides in the area by as much as 60%. The buildings made with TX Active stay cleaner.
