Influence of nanosilica on the mechanical properties and durability of cementitious materials

Abstract
Nanotechnology is gaining more and more attention over the past decade, leading to an increased use of nanomaterials for construction industry as well. the nanomaterial used in this research is nanosilica in solution or colloidal silica. this silica is used as a binder material and will replace cement particles. A characterization of mortar mixtures containing different amounts of silica is done by using ultrasonic waves, acoustic emission, mechanical tests, etc. and a comparison is made with respect to a reference mixture. Results point out the difference in mechanical behaviour and the increase of the mortar's durability as nanosilica is added.
