Bendable Concrete

I couldn’t resist sharing this.  Bendable concrete that flexes and heals itself when it rains.

Bendable Concrete

“A slab of self-healing concrete bends under 5 percent tensile strain, the force needed to stretch a material by 5 percent of its initial size.

While ordinary concrete would crumble under such pressure, the new material forms micro-cracks that can then auto-seal after being exposed to water and carbon dioxide”
