Committee Mission: Develop and report information on the implementation of nanotechnology and nanomaterials in concrete for industrial applications.
Goals: a) create terms related to the implementation of nano-engineered concrete;
b) create a report on the current applications and methods of implementation of nano-additives in concrete;
c) develop guidelines and technotes on application and/or implementation of nano-additives in concrete production and quality control;
d) report on investigation, modification and cost of nano-engineered concrete;
e) report on industrial application of nano-materials to improve the performance and sustainability of cement and concrete;
f) foster discussion on the selection of a standardized method for implementing nano-additives to concrete production at both the concrete batch plant and smaller concrete mixers;
g) report on health, safety and environmental issues related to the implementation nano-materials in concrete production, during the casting process and throughout the tenure of the concrete structure service-life;
h) organize technical sessions.
