The Portland Cement Association (PCA) and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) are teaming up to conduct research to identify cost-effective, blast-resistant building systems for military construction. Conducted on four of the most widely used commercial insulated concrete wall systems, including ICFs, precast and tilt-up insulating concrete sandwich panels, exterior insulating cast-in-place walls, and insulated reinforced masonry veneer and cavity walls, the research will measure the ability of full-scale wall panels to withstand external blast events.
