AbstractThe February issue of Construction Materials provides six articles primarily focused on ?new?, enhanced concrete materials. Indeed, in this issue considerable depth of technical information is provided on innovative concrete materials, in particular on concrete materials that incorporate rubber, otherpolymer-based compounds or mineral additives. The development of new concrete materials will no doubt continue at a rapid pace given the ever-increasing technological interest for cement manufacturers to reduce their ?carbon footprint? and minimise their contribution to greenhouse gases. Hence there is anincreasing need for reductions in cement content of concrete; supplementary materials, or other novel substitutes that provide sufficient strength without compromising the long-term performanceof the concrete, are actively being developed and evaluated. Hence this issue is of particular value in providing information on the different concrete composite products being developed, and also offers further understanding of their applicability, performance attributes and limitations in respect to durability and longer-term performance.
