Waste Materials and By-Products in Concrete


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.

Dr. Rafat Siddique is presently working as Professor & Head of Civil Engineering Department at Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology (Deemed University), Patiala, India. He obtained Ph.D. in 1993 from Birla Institute of Technology & Science, Pilani, India. He did post-doctoral work (for almost two years) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee, USA, and been to University of Cergy Pontoise, France and INSA Rennes, France as Visiting Professor. He has more than 17 years of teaching, research, and educational administrative experience. His research interests are: Fiber-Reinforced Concrete, High-Volume Fly Ash Concrete, High-Volume Fly Ash Fiber Reinforced Concrete, High-Strength High-Performance Concrete, Use of Industrial By-Products in Cement-Based Materials, and Properties of Concrete at Elevated Temperature. He has authored two books, and more than 60 research papers.
