Abstract:
This session intends to introduce to the concrete industry a new development on using nanofibers for several applications in concrete. Researchers the possible use of nanofibers to enhance cement hydration, add new functionalities (e.g., sensing and energy harvesting) and improve mechanical properties of concrete using nanofibers. Research has also shown the ability of new types of nanofibers to facilitate 3D-printing of concrete. Through this distinguished group of diverse speakers, this session will introduce to concrete researchers, engineers, suppliers, and contractors, how nanofibers are opening new frontiers in concrete technology.
