Bendable Concrete

Scientists from University of Michigan have developed a new type of fibre-reinforced bendable concrete. The new concrete looks like regular concrete, but is 500 times more resistant to cracking and 40% lighter in weight. Tiny fibres that comprise about 2% of the mixture’s volume partly account for its performance. Also, the materials in the concrete itself are designed for maximum flexibility. Because of its long life, the Engineered Cement Composites (ECC) are expected to cost less in the long run, as well
