Although introduced for chalcogenide glasses, molecular rigidity concepts have since been applied with great success to new families of materials, such as silicate glasses, phase-change materials, and proteins. Here, we review recent developments in the extension of rigidity theory to concrete, which is by far the most heavily manufactured material in the world.
By capturing the important atomic topology while filtering out less relevant structural details of calcium—silicate—hydrate, the binding phase of concrete, topological constraint theory was used to nanoengineer concrete from the atomic scale by predicting the compositional dependence of hardness, toughness, and creep. As such, rigidity concepts represent a promising tool to accelerate the discovery of new materials with tailored properties. Historical pipe organs offer rich insights into the relationships between materials and music in the past, and they represent a laboratory for contemporary materials science.
Recent cross-disciplinary research has explored problems of conservation and corrosion in old organ pipes. The ability of some notable European Baroque organs to produce sound is threatened by atmospheric corrosion of their lead-tin alloy pipes.

Organic acids emitted from the wood of organ cases are corrosive agents for lead-rich pipes. Laboratory exposure experiments were used to study the roles of humidity and alloy composition in the susceptibility to organic acid attack. The rates of growth, as well as the compositions and morphologies of the corrosion products were studied using gravimetry, x-ray diffraction, and scanning electron microscopy of surfaces and cross sections. This interdisciplinary project provides one model for the interplay of scientific and humanities research in addressing materials problems in cultural heritage.
