Smesa od šljunka i cementa koja ima svojstvo, pošto se ovlaži, da se stvrdne kao kamen (u novijoj građevinskoj tehnici igra jednu od najvažnijih uloga).
A strong hard building material composed of sand and gravel and cement and water.
Building material composed of cement, stone, sand, and water. It has been used since Egyptian and Roman times. Since the late 19th century, it has been increasingly employed as an economical alternative to materials such as brick and wood, and has been combined with steel to increase its tension capacity.
Reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete are strengthened by combining concrete with another material, such as steel rods or glass fibers. The addition of carbon fibers to concrete increases its conductivity. The electrical resistance of the concrete changes with increased stress or fracture, so this “smart concrete” can be used as an early indicator of structural damage.
