Iran has super tough smart concrete:
Iran ‘smart concrete’ to protect N-sites from US bunker busters
As a result, the website said, Iranian engineers are very good at developing “ultra-high performance concrete” (UHPC) which is among the toughest
and most rigid building materials in the world.
“Unlike conventional concrete, Iranian concrete is mixed with quartz powder and special fibers - transforming it into high performance concrete that
can withstand higher pressure with increased rigidity,” the article stated.
Due to its combination, the new Iranian-made concrete is an excellent building material with peaceful applications like the construction of safer
bridges, dams, tunnels, increasing the strength of sewage pipes, and even absorbing pollution.
