What is Ductal?
Few Years back in 2006; researchers at Iowa State University have developed a new type of concrete that is much stronger than conventional concrete. It can withstand pressures up to 595,000 pounds — more than the weight of seven semi trucks.
A new kind of concrete called Ductal that might allow bridges to hold more weight and last longer. Although it is 10 times more expensive than traditional materials but stronger and virtually impermeable, helping bridges become more durable.
We are extremely thankful to Dr. Varenyam Achal for sharing this research on our site and thus helping civil engineering students.
