Detrimental effect of Air pollution, Corrosion on Building Materials and Historical Structures

  title={Detrimental effect of Air pollution, Corrosion on Building Materials and Historical Structures},
  author={N. Venkat Rao and M. Rajasekhar and Gavara Chinna Rao},
The economy of any country would be drastically changed if there were no corrosion. The annual cost of corrosion world wise is over 3 % of the worlds GDP. As pet the sources available, India losses $ 45 billion every year on account of corrosion of infrastructure, Industrial machinery and other historical heritage. Keeping this critical and alarming situation in view, this paper focuses on how all these forms of corrosion affect building materials and historical structures. It also tries to…
