Cement and Concrete Research - Journal - Elsevier.
The aim of Cement and Concrete Research is to publish the best research on the materials science and engineering of cement, cement composites, mortars, concrete and other allied materials that incorporate cement or other mineral binders. In doing so, the journal will focus on reporting major results of research on the properties and performance of cementitious materials; novel experimental.
Transparent concrete is the new type of concrete introduced in todays world which carries special property of light transmitting due to presence of light Optical fibres. Which is also known as translucent concrete or light transmitting concrete, it is achieved by replacing coarse aggregates with transparent alternate materials (Optical fibres).

While portland cement concrete is one of the most versatile building materials on earth and has facilitated industrial growth in the last century, it is also one of the biggest in terms of environmental impact. Research at the University of Notre Dame on the use of RCA concrete aims to reduce this environmental impact.

The concept of transparent concrete was comes in 2001 which is introduced by Hungarian Architect, Aron Losoczi and the first transparent concrete block was successfully made in 2003 by using large amount of glass fiber and it is termed as LiTraCon. Due to development of glass and optical fiber works on transparent concrete will increases.
The paper deals with the modeling of such translucent or transparent concrete blocks and their usage and also the advantages it brings in the field of smart construction. Zhi Zhou, et al (2013) studied the development of smart transparent concrete using plastic optical fiber (POF) and Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) is discussed, along with its transparent and smart sensing properties.
