Influence of Different Nano Materials on Mechanical Properties of Plain Concrete


  •   Mohamad Farouk Abd-elmagied


This research aims to study the influences of three types of Nano materials on concrete compressive strength, considered Nano types were Nano-Iron Oxide Fe2O3 (NF), Nano-Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 (NM), and Nano-Silica SiO2 (NS). A constant concrete mix and water content were considered. The used percentages of different types of (NF, NM, and NS) that replaced by the cement content were (0.5, 1.0, 2.0, and 5.0%) of mixture weight (wt). The results demonstrated that the (NS) Nano type has better effect than other types on the concrete compressive strength.
