Smart concrete includes embedded carbon fibers

December 2005
Advanced Materials & Processes;Dec2005, Vol. 163 Issue 12, p13
Academic Journal
The article features the smart concrete developed by Dr. Deborah D.L. Chung of the State University of New York at Buffalo. It is formed by carbon fibers to furnish the ability to detect strain and deformation. Likewise, the electrical properties of smart concrete is useful to observe underground stresses that forms prior to an earthquake, building occupancy monitoring for intruders, and detecting traffic flow around the U.S. territories.
