Abstract

This article summarizes knowledge about a novelty in the field of construction – light-transmitting concrete. The concept of concrete with light-transmitting elements first appeared in a well-feasible form in Hungary under the trade name LiTraCon. These are concrete parts in which glass optical fibers are used as light-transmitting elements. He also mentions a Czech concrete product, LiCrete, which uses a grid of light-transmitting UV stable plexiglass. At the end of the article, an experiment is described in which the author of the article tried to make samples of light-transmitting concrete using optical glass rods and optical fibers.
