Breakthrough construction material for earthquake protection will mean safer buildings and bridges

(Natural News) Earthquakes can cause immense damage to infrastructure, in turn hindering the operation of important public services. A team of researchers from the Universitat Politècnica de València reportedly developed a new construction element capable of overcoming that problem. Dubbed “Smart Seismic Concrete Connection” (SSCC), this material is a combination of two “symbiotic” components: Shape-memory metal alloy…
