In a recent study published in the journal Materials, researchers from Spain analyzed the factors affecting the failure of asphalt pavements due to fatigue cracking of the bituminous layers viz. temperature, rest periods, and aging using a strain sweep test i.e. ensayo de barrido de deformations (EBADE) test.
Crack self-healing in concrete is analyzed thoroughly in Cement and Concrete Composites using water permeability testing. It was found that self-healing can improve the durability of concrete, using additional healing agents into cement materials.
A new paper published in the journal Materials by a group of researchers has demonstrated the potential and challenges of using phase change materials (PCM)-incorporated concrete in buildings.
Igus' energy chains are now been recycled in a circular way, allowing them to reuse them in our own innovation display stands.
The housing market has not kept up with demand for affordable housing in Iowa, leading to a new Iowa State University project that will work to find faster, cheaper solutions through 3D-printed homes.
The rising urgency to make industry and commerce more sustainable and efficient has also spread to the construction sector.
A new research in ACS Sustainable Chemistry Engineering shows a way of constructing a carbon recycling plant (CRP) to create methanol using the developing electrochemical reduction (ER) of carbon dioxide.
A new breakthrough in the journal Additive Manufacturing shows a concrete specimen that was inspired by Bouligand hierarchal architectures to develop 3D concrete printing. During drop weight impact testing, the impact performance of 3D-printed concrete specimens either with or without steel fibers was evaluated.
December 07, 2021 – Sunnyvale, CA. Covalent Metrology, a leading North American provider of analytical services, announces its partnership with JEOL a global leader in the development of cutting-edge scientific ins...
There is little dispute of the fact that concrete plays an important role in the development of human society, however, in terms of limiting its environmental impact, there is still work to be done. Now, a team of researchers, writing in the Chemical Engineering Journal, have developed a carbon-negative bio-char augmented concrete that could influence the future of the concrete industry.
