Nanotechnology in Cement and Concrete, Volume 1
TRB’s Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 2141 includes 17 papers that explore the effects of microsilica and nanosilica in concrete, the performance of cement systems with nano-SiO2, nanoindentation of alkali-activated fly ash, the addition of anatase TiO2 nanoparticles to cement-based materials, and the seeding effect of nano-CaCO3 on the hydration of tricalcium silicate. This issue of the TRR also examines cement paste microstructure evolution, atomic force microscopy examinations of mortar, and atomic force microscopy to measure the nanoscale mechanical properties of cement pastes.
