Description

Smart Nanoconcretes and Cement-Based Materials: Properties, Modelling and Applications explores the fundamental concepts and applications of smart nanoconcretes with self-healing, self-cleaning, photocatalytic, antibacterial, piezoelectrical, heating and conducting properties and how they are used in modern high-rise buildings, hydraulic engineering, highways, tunnels and bridges. This book is an important reference source for materials scientists and civil engineers who are looking to enhance the properties of smart nanomaterials to create stronger, more durable concrete.

Key Features

  • Explores the mechanisms through which active agents are released from nanocontainers inside concrete
  • Shows how embedded smart nanosensors, including carbon cement-based smart sensors and micro/nano strain-sensors, are used to increase concrete performance
  • Discusses the major challenges of integrating smart nanomaterials into concrete composites

Readership

Academics and R&D industry researchers in the fields of materials science and engineering
