  • Octet-Truss Engineered Concrete for Lightweight Structures

    Six SinBerBEST and non-SinBerBEST researchers from UC Berkeley recently authored an article discussing innovative uses of Octet-Truss Engineered Concrete (OTEC.) It is a lightweight structure created in the empty spaces of the ultra-high performance, fiber-reinforced concrete with very-high compressive capability. OTEC leverages porous concrete’s thermal-insulating properties while sustaining strength and rigidity. Please click here to access the article.
