Concrete Gets a Nano Makeover


Bones, shells, and deep-sea sponges. Hardly the stuff of mankind’s built environment. But it hasn’t escaped the attention of the brains at MIT that these biological materials are super strong due to the design precision of the tiny structures that comprise them. These observations are inspiring a new approach to cement paste, a nano approach that hopes to leverage nature’s most durable micromechanisms to give us concrete that is virtually indestructible.
