Concrete Particles

Researchers at Rice University have developed a technique to control the shape of particles in cement, leading to stronger, more durable and more environmentally friendly concrete(Credit: Multiscale Materials Laboratory)

Although we’ve been using concrete for hundreds of years, the recipe can always use some improvement. Researchers at Rice University have found a way to “program” cement particles into specific shapes in order to make concrete that’s stronger, less porous, and more environmentally friendly.
