Researchers at Purdue University in West Lafayette, IN, are trying to improve the quality of concrete to make it last longer. "From a mechanical perspective, we are trying to make sure the concrete can resist the forces or the load that's applied to it," explains Dr. Jason Weiss, professor of civil engineering at Purdue. Weiss heads the concrete testing labs at Purdue. He doesn't want Midwest roads and bridges developing large cracks.
