'Smart Concrete' for Levees

September 26th, 2005 | Filed under: Building Tech, Materials, Products | 13 Comments »

Deborah D. L. Chung‘s mixture of carbon fibers and conventional concrete, is an electrically conductive “smart concrete” (developed at the Composite Materials Research Laboratory) that can be continuously monitored for changes in electrical resistance as the material goes under stress. Levees and other critical structures can benefit from “smart concrete” and other early warning systems that sense subtle changes which occur prior to its failure.
