|Abstract||In the present investigation various extraction methods have been carried out for the estimation of free chloride and total chloride contents in different types of concretes, namely ordinary Portland cement (OPC), Pozzolana Portland cement (PPC) and Portland slag cement (PSC). Macro-cell concrete specimens were cast and subjected to severe alternate wetting and drying cycles of 10-months exposure. Concrete core samples were collected from the above specimens under different depths, namely20, 40 and 60 mm. Six extraction methods for determination of free chloride and two extraction methods for determination of total chlorides in concrete have been carried out. Boiling water method was found to be a suitable for the determination of free chloride contents in concrete. As the depth increases the amount of chloride ion decreases. Filtration method is found to be not suitable for the determination of chloride ion in concrete. There is no quick method for determining the chloride concentration in concrete either in the field or in laboratory. Water-soluble chloride alone is a good indicator of the concentration of chloride ion in concrete. ISE method appears to be most convenient but it requires lot of calibration before analysis.|

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 9 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.
