Abstract: The development and properties of light transmitting concrete (LiTraCon), which incorporates optical fibers into concrete for aesthetic and practical purposes. The papers explore various aspects of LiTraCon, including its production, strength characteristics, and potential applications in construction and design. The results show that the compressive strength of LiTraCon is similar to that of conventional concrete, and the transparency of concrete structures can be achieved with the insertion of optical fibers without compromising strength. Additionally, the use of eco-friendly materials in the production of LiTraCon has been explored, and smart transparent concrete has been developed for energy-saving and safety evaluation purposes. The studies suggest that LiTraCon is an emerging trend in concrete technology that offers future benefits in modern architecture.
