    Abstract: In recent years, there is a great interest in replacing a long time used materials in concrete structure by nanomaterials (NMs) to produce a concrete with novel functions. NMs are used either to replace a part of cement, producing ecological profile concrete or as admixtures in cement pastes. The great reactivity of NMs is attributed to their high ... Show More
