Abstract

The recent analysis and development in nanomaterial and nanotechnology have highlighted the potential importance similarly as use of those materials in varied fields such as construction, industry, medicine, energy, telecommunications as well as information processing. However, in recent times the potential for the appliance of the many of the developments within the nanotechnology trade within the space of construction and engineering science has been growing. Building materials may be one among the key beneficiaries of those researches in nanotechnology, with applications which will facilitate to enhance the characteristics of concrete, steel, glass etc. Use of nanotechnology in construction aims at developing novel, smart, eco-friendly and environment- friendly construction materials that successively can facilitate within the development towards the green structure. Usually speaking, the highest quantity of pollutants are because of the production of various construction materials as well as due to the energy needed throughout their usage and repair. Rising the materials resistance and after increasing their durability will certainly scale back the environmental pollution by reducing carbon footprint of the structures. On the opposite hand, it's ascertained that the higher understanding of advanced structure of cement-based material at nano-level can lead to a brand new developments within the field of construction materials. It'll positively improve the characteristics similarly as properties of the infrastructures, viz., strength and durability.
