The evolution of mechanical properties of AAM conditions its potential use for concrete applications. In particular, the compressive and tensile strength, elastic modulus, and creep behaviour must be carefully measured since the earliest age in order to provide an accurate overview of the structural behaviour of AAM-based concrete.
