Five-year study shows recycled concrete works as well as normal concrete, maybe a bit better

Five-year study shows recycled concrete works as well as normal concrete, maybe a bit better Researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) conducted side-by-side comparisons of recycled and conventional concrete in a building foundation and a municipal sidewalk, finding that the recycled concrete had comparable strength and durability after five years in service. The study conducted by UBC Okanagan’s School of Engineering also found that the recycled concrete had a higher rate of compressive strength after 28 days of curing, while maintaining a greater or equal strength during the five-year period.Crushed concrete replaced natural aggregate in the study’s recycled...

Russian engineers give Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome a fractal makeover

Russian engineers give Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic dome a fractal makeover The geodesic dome, a way of making spherical structures out of triangular elements, has been given a 21-century redesign by two Russian engineers armed with modern computers. The dome was developed in Germany in the 1920s, and taken up by legendary US designer Buckminster Fuller in the 1940s as a solution for America’s housing shortage. The idea was to use factories that previously made aircraft to prefabricate the domes. Fuller’s business venture failed, but many domes have since been built, often as statement pieces with ecological import, such as the...
