Prof. Victor Li - the innovative creator of NanoMaterial in Civil Engineering

    The innovative creator of NanoMaterial in Civil Engineering: Review
      "One of the most challenging problems in infrastructure is to endure our built infrastrutures from the affect influences from the natural and man-made hazard. To mitigate the influence of hazard on the infrastructures, the smart engineer utilizes the smart material through materials technology". 
      One of the most smart and influencing engineer and researcher in the world in the area of smart material is "Professor Victor C. Li".
       Prof. Li use the technology core that is micromechanics-based designed engineered cemetitious composites (ECC) with ductility approaching two to three orders of magnitude that of ordinary concrete of FRC. Prof.Li's research extends its impact on the quality of life via interdisciplinary research collaborations with partners specilizing in polymer chemistry, rheology, fiber processing, including structural and construction engineering.

  This is for the "better built environment and infrastructures".  Read more Prof.Victor Li in Forbes.
