Abstract

Deforestation, clearance or clearing is the removal of a forest or stand of trees where the land is thereafter converted to a non-forest use. Deforestation includes conversion of forestland to farms, ranches, or urban use. Since the industrial age, about half of world’s original forests have been destroyed and millions of animals and living things have been endangered. Despite the improvements in education, information and general awareness of the importance of forests, deforestation has not reduced much, and there are still many more communities and individuals who still destroy forest lands for personal gains. Deforestation also provides stability to slope through which mass movement of rocks, debris could not occur. As the plant or tree roots provides some reinforcement and also remove groundwater. On hilly areas vegetation can stabilize steep slopes and if the cutting of trees continues it would result in a drastic change in the atmosphere or in the environment. In this paper there is summarization of cause of deforestation, deforestation causes, environment changes i.e. loss of biodiversity and how deforestation is related to landslide.

#IJSRD – Study on Comparative Analysis of Building with AAC Blocks and Conventional Bricks


Study on Comparative Analysis of Building with AAC Blocks and Conventional Bricks

Very Useful Paper/Article for Civil Engineering Students

Keywords: Life Cycle Assessment, Kiln Burnt Brick, Autoclaved Aerated Concrete, Life Cycle Assessment Impact Categories, Raw Material Index

Abstract: In most of the cases Autoclaved aerated Concrete block is stronger than a Conventional brick made of clay and both of them have their pros and cons. Brick and Cement are majorly used materials in building industry. Kiln Burnt Brick is majorly use exterior wall material in the market. Also, Aerated Concrete (AAC) is a non combustible, cementatious building material that is expanding into new worldwide markets. Here we aimed to compare the environmental impact of materials- Kiln Burnt Brick and Autoclaved Aerated Concrete used for wall assemblies. The final objective is to evaluate the materials on the bases of Life Cycle Assessment Impact Categories which includes: Raw Material Index (RMI), Water consumption, Embodied Energy (EE) and Operational Energy (U-Value), Electricity, Occupational Health and Safety (OHS Index), Total Cost, CO2 Emissions.
