Abstract

Nanoscience and nanotechnology provide enormous opportunities to engineers the properties of materials by working in atomic or molecular level. It has not only facilitated to overcome many limitations of conventional materials, but also tremendously improved the mechanical, physical and chemical properties of the materials as well. Nanoscience has paved the way to tailor the properties of materials based on particular requirement by working in atomic or molecular level. In general, nanotechnology is not an isolated technology for certain purposes, but it is an enabling technology to achieve many goals by engineering a material at nano level. Similar to the fields like energy, medicine, electronics, etc., nanotechnology shows remarkable potentiality of its role to play by opening a new way to solve many of the perennial problems civil engineers do face every day. To develop high performance, multifunctional, ideal construction material, Cement composites with nano-additions have been vastly studied for their functional applications, such as strain and damage sensing. The capacity of a carbon nanofiber (CNF) cement paste has already been tested. However, this study is focused on the use of CNF cement composites as sensors in regular concrete samples. After reviewing various research papers, we found that carbon nano-fibre is a upcoming technology which is need to be used in construction. CNF with various percentages and its effect on the strength of structure is needed to be studied.
