Abstract

This review paper examines the relationship between nanotechnology and the study of concrete materials science. In order for concrete nanotechnology to be brought to the forefront of the construction industry, the benefits of the technology must be clearly demonstrated by the research community. The authors have identified three broad areas of nanoscale research that have the potential to increase the knowledge of the material: (1) nanoscale materials characterization, (2) nanoscale sensing, and (3) nanomechanics and modeling. The recent developments of each area are discussed, and future goals in each area are outlined.
