|Abstract||Corrosion of steel rebars in reinforced concrete constructions, particularly those located in marine environments and industrially polluted areas is one of the major problems baffling the construction industry all over theworld including India. A suitable protective coating to rebar is found to improve the durability of such structures under aggressive exposures. The performance of a fewpolymeric coatings based on different resins such as acrylic polyol-aromatic isocyanate, polyester polyol-aromatic isocyanate, acrylic resin and epoxy–silicone–polyamide containing ordinary Portland cement or flyash as extenders and titanium dioxide and zinc phosphate as main pigments on rebar in concrete has been evaluated using mechanical strength tests and accelerated corrosion tests. It is observed that, of the 16 coating formulations, four have been found to perform well as effective and durable coatings.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
