The qualitative research in this case study evaluates the importance of bendable concrete within various construction settings. The data aims to justify the interest in bendable concrete, as well as why it is not being used more in structural work. The intended stakeholders of this paper are concrete suppliers, contractors, and researchers who are looking for more imperative ways to manufacture a more sustainable form of concrete. Through a brief online meeting and a Google Form questionnaire, company participants were able to provide the knowledge and feedback desired for how bendable concrete can be incorporated more in the future of construction. The responses defined the importance of sustainability, seismic forces, costs, and location impacts of bendable concrete. Conclusive data revealed that bendable concrete would be a great way to reduce concrete fractures and that it would be applicable in several building applications. There are still gaps to be filled regarding the complexity of bendable concrete, but the data provided insight into why bendable concrete can serve as an effective alternative in various projects.
