Researchers at Purdue University have developed a 3D- printed cement paste that actually gets tougher under pressure. The idea was derived from the toughening ca - pabilities of shells found on arthropods, such as lobsters and beetles. Several of the designs already fabricated by the team include the "honeycomb," "compliant" and "Bou - ligand" designs, called "architectures." Future implementa- tion of this technology could be used in buildings and other elements of infrastructure that are subject to stressors, such as weather or traffic. A video can be found in the following article linked here . Purdue's work was funded by the National Science Foundation with a $246,000 grant to further the research.
