Air Pollution

Air Pollution

The earth is the only object known in the entire universe capable of supporting life. This support of life is mainly due to the presence of its unique atmosphere. Today there is overwhelming evidence that various pollutants do and will continue to affect life on this planet adversely; In the wake of industrialization, consequent urbanization, and ever-increasing population, the basic amenities of life, viz., air, water, and land are being polluted continuously. Industrial complexes have become the foci of environmental pollution.

”Air is the most essential requirement for life” and it can be. gauged by the fact that man can hardly survive for 5 minutes without air; however, he can survive for 5 days without water and for 5 weeks without food. It has become increasingly evident that air pollution is affecting vegetation and non-living things like metals, marble, wood, paint, papers, etc., to the same extent as it is affecting human and animal lives.

Air pollution causes

The imbalance in the quality of air causes adverse effects on the living organisms existing on earth.

Air pollution can also be described as

”Substances introduced into the air by the activity of mankind in such concentrations sufficient to cause serious effects on his health, vegetables, property or interference with the enjoyment of his property.”

Commonly air constitutes 80% of man’s 5 daily intakes by weight. We breathe 22,000 times a day inhaling 16 kg of air. It is, therefore, essential that we know enough about the air around us and the means to keep it clean.

India’s main problem of air pollution arises from the fact that 80% of its industrial production is concentrated in some large industrial centers. This has created severe environmental pollution problems in isolated pockets.

Comparison between VSI and CSI

Comparison between VSI and CSI In power electronic systems, inverters are an essential component that converts direct current (DC) into alternating current (AC). There are two main types of inverters used in power electronic systems: Voltage Source Inverters (VSI) and Current Source Inverters (CSI). Both have their own unique advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of which to use depends on the specific application and the desired outcome. Comparisons between voltage source inverters and current source inverters are as follows. In voltage source inverters, the input voltage is maintained constant and the amplitude of the output voltage does not depend on the load. However, the waveform of load current, as well as its magnitude, depends upon the nature of load impedance.  In current source inverters (CSI), the input current is constant but adjustable. The amplitude of output current from CSI is freelance of the load. However, the magnitude of output voltage and its undulation outp

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory The value of the coefficient of consolidation has been assumed to be constant.  The distance d of the drainage path cannot be measured accurately in the field. The thickness of the deposit is generally variable, and an average value has to be estimated.  There is sometimes difficulty 1n locating the drainage face, and sometimes thin previous seams that can act as good drainage faces are missed in the boring operations. The equation is based on the assumption that the consolidation is one-dimensional. In the field, the consolidation is generally 3-dimensional. The lateral drainage may have a significant effect on the time rate of consolidation. The initial consolidation and secondary consolidation have been neglected. Sometimes these form an important part of the total consolidation. In actual practice, the pressure distribution may be far from linear or uniform.
