Self-Healing Concrete Techniques and Technologies and Applications

Received: 30 April 2023;  Published: 21 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2401006

Abstract

The main weakest point of concrete is its exposure to cracks, and concrete structure repair is expensive, especially for infrastructure maintenance, which is difficult to access. The ability of self-healing concrete (SHC) to successfully heal fractures without the assistance of humans has received much attention since it increases operational life and lowers maintenance expenses. This paper reviews various techniques and technologies of autogenous and autonomous self-healing concrete. Much more [...]

Do Magnetic Monopoles Exist?

Received: 21 October 2023;  Published: 07 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2401005

Abstract

In this paper, we continue our previous work by discussing the consequences of curvature in spacetime caused by the presence of mass and the implications of this. We address the question raised by Dirac regarding the impact of a magnetic monopole on the quantum world. We discuss quantization concerning the solid angles observed, which may have a connection with a magnetic monopole.

Elementary Collective Effects in Systems Containing Small Fermion-Numbers

Received: 14 October 2023;  Published: 06 February 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2401004

Abstract

One deals with an fermions collective where we encounter elementary emerging-collective phenomena at very low temperatures. This simplicity allows for expanding our insight on collective fermion behavior. We focus on several quantifiers, including standard ones related to thermal behavior, such as the von Neumann entropy, and quantifiers of other kinds, like the quantum mixture.

Modified Organized Systems by Incorporation of Carbon Allotropes and Derivatives for Electron Shuttle, ET, FRET, MEF, and Quantum Biology Coupling

Received: 14 October 2023;  Published: 31 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2401003

Abstract

In this communication, it was afforded in brief to show how high conjugated carbon based structures, and Carbon allotropes could participate as electron shuttle, semiconductors, quantum emitters and Opto-electronic processors within confined Nanostructured Organized systems. In particular was focused on Nanoassemblies such as vesicles, micelles and lipidic Nanoparticles; and incorporating as well insights from other types of Nanomaterials that could afford to develop new organized systems. It sh [...]

An Overview of Treatments for Ultraviolet Quenching Substances (UVQS) and Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Removal from Landfill Leachate

Received: 15 September 2023;  Published: 24 January 2024;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2401002

Abstract

Organics found in landfill leachate (humic acids, fulvic acids, and hydrophilic fraction) have a solid ability to absorb ultraviolet (UV) radiation, which negatively affects UV disinfection; leachate ultraviolet quenching substances (UVQS) can, therefore, have a significant impact on the cotreatment of landfill leachate and sewage in wastewater treatment plants. On the other hand, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), which pose potential risks to the environment a [...]
