    #42 Ah, Lada, now I understand even better. The WCC is not a significant structural contributor, but essential a surfacing layer and fire-spread resistant barrier. The high admisture of wood sawdust not only lightens the material but probably helps to minimize differential in coefficients of thermal expansion re the GLULAM and surfacing later.

    BTW, my share of your buzz on LinkedIn has already racked up nearly 1,400 views and significant engagement. Not bad at all in comparison to the reaction here -- especially when you factor in, what I call, the Reality Conversion Coefficient. Cheers!

    #28 Sorry for the late response. I'm in the process of relocation. My office is moving to a different location in the city, and there is a lot of work to do.
    Phil, all such research activities are focused on the ecological aspects and finding alternatives to concrete. This method significantly reduces the quantity of concrete.
    The image in the post shows the testing process of the specimen consisting of glulam beams on the bottom and the WCC layer over.
    Also, very interesting is how two different materials are connected together to ensure distribution of loads but also a solid connection between WCC and timber.
    Placing WCC as the secondary (non-structural) layer met all requirements for fire resistance, acoustic and thermal insulation.
    As for the lack of the interest, I have nothing more to say. If I had a time, I'd share this myself with my community on LI. Thanks for doing so.

    This technique should be transported to all the city dwellers in the world. It pains me to read and encounter incidents where a rear part or the entire building collapses due to the dilapidated condition of the structure. It would be of great use here in our city as well as maximum number of people gets killed by huge beams and concrete. Looking at this technology it would be of great help to be placed in dwellings which only uses mortar, concrete and iron beams. Even during any untoward incident people would be safe enough to escape with their lives intact.

    #33 Although a timber floor slab is claimed to provide a better feel underfoot than concrete floor slab, I never felt the difference on my joints. I've been living whole my life in houses with reinforced concrete slabs and wood floors over. For six years now, I've been working in a 100-years old building with timber floor slabs and what I sometimes feel are vibrations.
    To prevent stress on joints, perhaps you can install sleepers subfloor over a concrete slab.

    #32 Joanne, to answer your questions -- 1) epoxy polymers generally do better than polyesters re flammability, smoke generation, and toxic gasses. You are correct, however, that reaction to fire is of concern where polymers (plastics) are involved. Significant improvements can be made by adding inorganic materials to the resins, and in this regard, epoxies are much more tolerant of such additions as to potential modifications of their mechanical properties, which are in general much higher (by 10x on average) than those of polyesters. 2) If a slab floor is to be a "work floor" with people walking constantly upon it, the best way to deal with that is, in my experience, to add a resilient "top floor" over the slab. That can be as simple as rubber or vinyl matting or as sophisticated as a floating "gymnasium" style over-floor. Eh, @Lada ๐Ÿก Prkic?

    #27 #28 #30 @Phil Friedman thank you for expanding on the engineering perspective. "Finally, I continue to wonder if a better approach might not be a completely engineered wood member, surfaced with abrasion and fire resistant aggregates held in an epoxy polymer-based matrix?" Wouldn't the epoxy polimer make toxic fumes burning in a building fire? I would also think the profile under heat stress would be unstable and unpredictable in a fire situation, too. Finding your ideas very interesting.

    @Gerald Hecht shared a buzz back in July about a prototype for floating islands made of triangular web. I wonder if the floating wood cement mix blocks would make a good material for building on top? The article talks about the webs being able to withstand 50-foot waves. At the time, I couldn't imagine anything on top of the web being able to withstand those same 50-foot waves.

    Another question Phil, would you say the wood composit structual floor slabs would have more "give" and be easier on joints for people living and working on the floors? Just one day of standing on concrete floors has me stiff and sore. I can't imagine living in a home that put that kind of stress on my joints yet many housing units are made with concrete floors.

    Please tag me in the LinkedIn conversations when you share, Phil. I would love to listen while the topic is kicked around. Again, thank you for enriching the conversation.

    PS- @Lada ๐Ÿก Prkic, I do believe that the described WCC would be a great material for casting the blocks for the ubiquitous (to NorthAmerica) concrete block building construction. If lightweight blocks could be cast in WCC with self-aligning and self-locking tabs (like giant Legos), the reduced weight might make shipping from centralized manufacturing plants cost-feasible. Resulting in faster, higher-quality assembly on-site by lower-cost, lesser skilled labor. I like that idea a lot, especially in the area of affordable housing. Cheers!

    #23 @Lada ๐Ÿก Prkic, I've now looked at the additional articles listed at the end of the news piece and one of the things I see is that WCC is being used in composite members with engineered wood (GLULAM) in slab applications, for example as the structural floor slabs in a multi-storied warehouse.

    In such a case the GLULAM component is used on the bottom where flexure loading (beam bending) puts the GLULAM in tension, while the upper WCC component is placed in compression. This makes sense to me, as it takes the best advantage of the mechanical properties of the materials involved, including the better abrasion and fire resistance of the WCC vs wood.

    However, I still wonder why WCC instead of traditional reinforced concrete? Does the reduced structural weight allow a higher live-load bearing for the slab? Even though the upper WCC component will have a lower compressive strength vs reinforced concrete? Or could it be that the WCC component is a better match with the GLULAM component in terms of coefficient of thermal expansion?

    Finally, I continue to wonder if a better approach might not be a completely engineered wood member, surfaced with abrasion and fire resistant aggregates held in an epoxy polymer-based matrix?

    The issues and questions are quite fascinating and I don't understand why so little interest is shown on beBee by the engineering community which appears to be large. I am going to share this to LinkedIn where I know from experience there are engineers who would love to kick around these questions and the research you point to. Cheers!

    I see scientists in many other professional endeavors beyond their specialty. Some become professors, writers, technical writers, a Pope (Pope Francis is a Chemist), priests (Mendel, genetics, Monseigneur Georges Lemaรฎtre, the creator of the Big Bang Theory), classical music composers and instrument virtuosi (Alexander Borodin was a Chemist, Albert Einstein was a very good violinist), some become successful traders and hedge fund managers, some become writers (i.e., Isaac Asimov, Steven Hawking) others work as treasurers (Isaac Newton was the de facto treasurer of England), others become painters and inventors (if we consider Leonardo Da Vinci as a scientist due his work in optics, anatomy) and many more.

    What is just as important as science communication outreach is acknowledgement of source. People like Malcolm Gladwell have made their name off curating the work of scientists, but the public reward the messenger and not the thinker who developed the idea. People do not check bibliographies to determine source and are more easily pleased to acknowledge the person who brought information to the public, than the scientist whose genius came up the idea. Ideas that become popular however do not guarantee the public is engaged in the best thinking but the most popular idea.
