Advancement of Concrete Using Nano Materials: A Brief Review
Manish Pratap Singh
Abstract: Nano concrete is that type of concrete in which particles of Nano size are used to fill the voids of concrete to enhance its mechanical and engineering properties. Construction industry is emerging day by day and in between there is vast improvement in quality of concrete also. From millimeter era to micrometer era and now concrete are studied at Nano level that can be said as Nano era and the concrete is called Nano concrete. Recently many researchers have shown keen interest to study the core of concrete at Nano level so that engineering and mechanical properties of concrete like workability, strength, durability, permeability etc. may be enhanced. . In this paper a brief report has been summarized from some research work of researchers on use of nonmaterial in concrete. Various Nano particles like Nano silica, Nano lime, carbon Nano tube, carbon Nano fibers, Grapheme, Nano Titanium, Nano clay and many other Nano particles having required engineering properties are studied by many researcher and an overview of that studied are presented in this paper. Various properties of Nano particles and their impact on properties of concrete after treating with these particles are studied and summarized. Here also discussion is made on principle and application of nonmaterial that are used in concrete, advantages of Nano concrete, difficulties arises while using Nano materials in concrete, their possible short out technique and future scope.
