A new 3D cementitious panel is introduced as a material that could protect houses from natural disasters.

A group of German researchers has found a way to manipulate construction waste by turning them into new materials.

Researchers have developed micron-sized calcium silicate spheres that could increase concrete's strength and reduce its environmental footprint.

Wood presents a lot of benefits as a building material because it is strong, lightweight and environmental friendly. However, only changes in building codes will make wood competitive with steel and concrete.

A new method to produce concrete that traps harmful CO2 emissions and increases the compression strength is implemented by Carbocure, a Canadian Start-up company.

MIT students have found a way to produce plastic-reinforced concrete that is up to 15% stronger than conventional concrete, by adding irradiated bits of plastic water bottles

A rectangular column (400mmX400mm) is constructed of concrete and four steel reinforcing rebars. An axial force of 1000KN is subjected on the column. What is the diameter of the steel bars if the ¼ of the load is transferred to the steel bars and ¾ is transferred to the concrete? ( EST=200GPa, Ec=25GPa)
