Nanotechnology in Civil Engineering

Nanomaterials as a field can be defined as a study of materials with morphological features on the nanoscale, especially those that have special properties stemming from the nanoscale dimensions.In various fields such as construction, medicine, automobile industry, energy, telecommunications and informatics were plays an important role. Carbon nanotubes, Titanium Dioxide Nanoparticals, Silicon Dioxide Nanoparticals, Zinc Oxide Nanoparticals, and many more nanomaterials are used in Constructions and all other major fields under Civil Engineering. And also now this nanotechnology is used in Highways that means Road constructions. Then the optimization of material behavior and significantly improves mechanical properties of pavements like durability, skid resistance, etc., by using Nanomaterials to give good aesthetics, self-cleaning glasses and more properties. Furthermore, nano-cement and nano-paint are introduced as the outstanding representations. The main advantage of nanomaterials in Civil Engineering is the Eco-friendly, the cement and concrete reduces the emission of Carbon Dioxide. So that the Global Warming is minimized.
