Construction Technology -2020
Construction technology refers to the innovative tools, machinery, modifications, software, etc. used during the construction phase of a project that allows progress in field construction methods, including semi-automated and automated construction equipment.
Greener Asphalt Construction TechnologyWhen you think "green", recycled asphalt pavement is probably not the first thing you can think of, but it is actually one of the most recycled products in the United States! At Wolf Paving, we take every opportunity to reuse and recycle materials from our paving works.
Wolf Paving recycles some materials:
- Old concrete
- Asphalt shingles
- Old asphalt
- Waste oil
Construction Site Robots Construction Technology
First, it is a 3D printing robot that can build large buildings on demand. There are also construction robots for masonry and masonry, and even robots that place an entire street at once. These types of robots improve the speed and quality of construction work.
Example construction site robot
- Off-site prefabrication systems
- On-site automated and robotic systems
- Drones and autonomous vehicles
Self Healing Concrete Construction Technology
Self-healing concrete is the result of a biological reaction of unreacted limestone and a calcium-based nutrient with the help of bacteria to cure cracks in the building. A special type of bacteria known as Bacillus is used along with a calcium nutrient known as calcium lactate. This idea has been provoked by a scientist Hendrik Jonker. Bacillus pseudofirmus or Sporosarcina pasteurii use calcium lactate as a food source that produces limestone as a byproduct. It is said that they can be placed in small capsules with the nutrient (to keep the latent bacteria mixed) in the concrete.
Solar roads And Smart High Way Construction Technology
Solar roads make the road smarter. It provides clean and renewable energy while providing safer driving conditions along with the delivery of energy and data. LEDs can also be programmed to move along with cars at the speed limit, warning drivers instantly when driving too fast.
