man made-island PALM DEIRA Of DUBAIEgyptian pyramids were constructed by concrete, but this type of concrete might havesome different composition. Roman concrete was made from quick
lime, pozolana and an
aggregate of pumice concrete, as the Roman‘s knew, it was new and revolutionar
y materials,laid in the shape of arches, vaults and domes of the internal rusts and strain. Modern
structural concrete differs from Roman‘s concrete into two important details: First, its mixed
consistency is fluid and homogenous and it is to be poured into forms rather than requiringhand layering together with the placement of aggregate which in Roman, often consisted of rubble. Second, integral reinforcing steels gives modern concrete assemblies great strength intension ,whereas Roman concrete could depends only upon the strength of the concretebonding to resist the tension.
A Drexel University professor has determined that the GreatPyramids of Giza are constructed with a combination of not only carved stones but the firstblocks of limestone-based concrete cast by any civilization.
