Bendable Concrete Could Offer Solutions to Crumbling Infrastructure

Bendable concrete, also known as Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC), has been around since the early 1990s. But a team of researchers at Louisiana State University (LSU) is close to finally bringing the material to market.

Scientists at LSU have been developing and testing an ECC mixture that has proven far superior to traditional concrete. ECCs can withstand the kind of deformation stress that would crack regular concrete—stress that is 100 to 500 times greater than regular concrete can handle.
