Video of the week: ‘Liquid Wall’ curtain walls of ultra-high-performance concretePublished on September 23rd, 2011 | By: firstname.lastname@example.org
This video features one example of the innovative architectural structural design opportunities emerging from the availability of ultra-high-performance concrete. This material, also known as ultra-high-strength concrete, provides improved strength, stiffness, ductility and durability compared to typical concrete. The UHPC used in this video is a product called Ductal, made by Lafarge North America.
The design for the curtain wall permits replacement of individual units and allows for the incorporation of passive solar heating panels.
