The New Generation of Concrete with the Approach of Ductility: Review


Student of Earthquake Engineering in Qazvin Islamic Azad University. Qazvin,Iran


The present study examines the new generation of concrete. Concrete has long been a major problem, is its ductility. Traditionally, remembering the words of concrete, compressive strength also comes to mind. Compressive strength is not only parameter of necessary and sufficient for a material. Concrete is basically brittle material. By adding the steel in this material is an attempt to ductile it. Provide the necessary ductility, with the addition of the steel and high costs is possible. Is it possible to concrete without adding the steel to the desired ductility that desire? In the future, the studies in this regard will be discussed.
