Building Material Safety Matters—Just Watch This Video!

In the wake  destructive spate of tornados across the American Southeast, Build with Strength, a coalition of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA) released a video promoting the safety advantages of building with concrete.

The video predominantly features the use of wind tunnels, or simulated high-velocity wind machines, designed to replicate the potential debris damage in a violent storm or tornado.

The Texas Tech-led wind tunnel experiments illustrate the critical need for greater wind-related disaster preparedness, starting with the materials and methods we use in construction.
