Super concrete

High strength, high ductility concrete will make for a much more resilient constructing material which would be able to withstand the power of earthquakes and extreme loading much better than the concrete that is widely used today. The super concrete developed in the Li group in collaboration with the US Army has a compressive strength of 160 MPa (about 2-3 times that of high strength concrete) together with a tensile ductility of over 3% (over 300 times that of high strength concrete).
