New construction method to strengthen concrete

More from this show

An Arizona State University professor is promoting a new idea to help strengthen concrete and cut down on construction costs. Barzin Mobasher and his team have come up with a certain set of calculations engineers can use to simplify the process of mixing fibers into concrete, which can take the place of steel rebar. The fibers also give concrete the ability to withstand higher levels of tension. Mobasher shares his methods with Arizona Horizon.
