Abstract:

Concrete is one of the necessary elements for structural work in the modern construction and it contains several intervals such as flaws, voids, fissures, bleeding channels, etc. It is difficult to explain how exactly these various intervals give a reduction in actual strength of concrete. Therefore there is need to implement modern techniques by which reduction in concrete strength can be prevented at the micro and nano levels. In this present work, it is to study the exhibition of M40 and M60 grade concretes with the use of nano materials has been replacing the cement with nanotitanium dioxide (TiO2). The workability of M40 and M60 grade concrete with and without replacing Nano TiO2 has been studied by conducting slump cone and compaction factor tests. At last, the characteristic strength of both grades of concrete have been studied by performing accomplish compression test and split tensile test. The application of nano technology is by including nano materials in concrete have given a new extent to improve the mechanical properties of concrete. Based on the results, it was observed that the Nano TiO2 particles have been very effective for the replacement of cement at 1.0% and the compressive strength was increased around 8%. This is used at the places where high strength parameter, durability and low permeability are required.
