University researchers engineer seismic-resistant concrete
from Construction Dive
Researchers at the University of British Columbia have engineered what they call eco-friendly ductile cementitious composite (EDCC), a new concrete that is reinforced by polymer-based fibers and resistant to seismic activity, according to the institution. Similar to steel's molecular make-up, nearly 70 percent of the concrete's cement is replaced with fly ash, making it a sustainable alternative to a fully cement composition.
