Research on flexible concrete panels that can be deformed and returned to their original shape without major cracking is reported. The fiber content of this concrete is 10% to 15% of its volume, making it up to 10 times as strong as unreinforced concrete. This makes it possible to create relatively thin precast panels, perhaps 1/2-inch-thick rather than 6-inch thick. Its crack resistsnce makes it easier to handle; facade panels can be poured to cover larger areas and are lighter to transport and easier to assemble.
