Optimized Capabilities to Meet Structural Challenges
Structural concrete is a reference to steel reinforced concrete structures that are designed and built for the support of a certain amount of load, also referred to as the design load. Over the years, structural concrete technology has been refined and modified to take on higher loads and has totally replaced the bulkier and less reliable masonry buildings of the past. This, in turn, has afforded architects greater freedom to design more challenging structures.
Today, with the advances in chemistry, newer generations of polymer-modified concrete are increasing the load-bearing capacity and water resistance of concrete, paving the way for newer opportunities.
