Concrete is pretty awesome substance to build bunkers and other fortifications. Cheap, versitile and usually easy to incorporate into any surrounding.
But the problem is that it's... not all that durable on the long term. if you look at bunkers of WW2 or so (or even younger ones) they quickly fall into disrepair. It just can't take the wear and tear of time. The climate and even mild acidity of rain will quickly crumble them.
Where as if you look at Ye Olde Schoole castles, they are pretty fine even after centuries of poor maintenance. They used STONE to craft those things, and while it was more difficult and expensive to work on, once it was build it was pretty much maintenance free for centuries.
So I was wondering if there was some modern technique to make "weather-proof" concrete, for structures that are meant to be there for not just 50 years but for 300 years later?
If we forget about the artillery, anc solely focus on "hwo to make things last for centuries" does concrete have any room in that discussion? Or are you more or less forced to rely on STONE?
Tell me the answer to the Riddle of Concrete!
