MSU Cyclotron

East Lansing, Michigan. USA


Year Completed

Project Summary


Michigan State University is home to one of the world’s flagship nuclear science research facilities. This National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory is funded by the National Science Foundation to be a national user facility with a mission to provide beams of rare isotopes for researchers from around the world.

When completing this project, MSU chose to use Helix Steel Twisted Steel Micro-Rebar™ reinforcement as a structural reinforcement. The dosage of 9 lb/yd3 in a 3.5” thick section replaced the original 6x6, W3.0/W3.0 mesh. The modulus of rupture increased by 18%, the durability by 22% and the shear strength increased by 194%.
