A building technique as old as dirt is being re-tested as a ‘new’ and feasible modern construction material. Compressed soil, also called rammed earth, is a construction technique that goes back several centuries.
A pioneering, innovative method that involves the application of nanoengineering technology to include graphene in conventional concrete production has been developed by researchers at the University of Exeter.
A novel, environmental-friendly technique that strengthens building structures has been developed by researchers. The innovative method combines biochar, which is recycled from sawdust, into cement and enhances the water tightness (impermeability) and strength of concrete and mortar.
There is a new technology emerging from the University of Queensland, Australia, that can potentially transform toxic red mud (bauxite residues) into usable soil. This approach aims to tackle the expensive rehabilitation processes associated with red mud dams throughout Australia.
The three-day International Building & Construction Trade Fair has come to an end at the Shanghai National Convention & Exhibition Center registering 42,000 visitors, a 24.19% increase from the previous year.
A group of researchers have developed a new framework that will coordinate both water and road repairs, preventing unnecessary disruption and damage.
Research into self-crack-healing structural ceramics has uncovered a novel way of using 3D networks of healing activators as a design approach.
America’s infrastructure could be saved by self-healing fungi concrete, which can help repair cracks in aging concrete permanently.
