Digital tools have also increased the level of control and the possible variety of geometrical manipulations achievable in concrete formwork, such as the transfer of high-resolution-photographic images or intricate embossed patterns to concrete surfaces.  23: Disruptive Applications Concrete continues to demonstrate significant potential in structural as well as surfacing applications. Once limited to low-slung structures or buildings with shorter spans, concrete has demonstrated unprecedented capacity in achieving a record-setting altitude.

Composition Concrete is made of aggregates of different sizes and a cement binder that is activated by water. Cement consists of limestone, silicon, calcium, and often aluminum and iron, and is offered in multiple types, including Type I (general use), II (moderate heat of hydration), III (high early strength), IV (low heat of hydration), and V (sulfate resistant). The composition of concrete is typically six parts water, four parts coarse aggregate (gravel), two parts fine aggregate (sand), and one part portland cement.
