Effect on Addition of Nano "Titanium Dioxide” (TiO2)on Compressive Strength of Cementitious Concrete

7 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Cementitious concrete has great practical difficulties in achieving high compressive strength and durability of high performance structures. But it becomes a challenge to increase the compressive strength and durability of particular cementitious composite and also maintaining basic desirable properties of concrete. This paper addresses these problems by the addition of nano-materials. In this study, an attempt is made to understand the effect of Anatase Nano Titanium Dioxide (TiO2), on Conventional Concrete (CC) of M20 grade with various proportions 0.5%, 0.75%, 1.0%, 1.25%, 1.5% in relation with the weight of cement. The Workability, Strength parameters at various proportions of Anatase Nano Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) are tested at different durations. The results obtained are being discussed in the paper.

Keyphrases: Conventional concrete, nano material, nano titanium dioxide, strength, Workability
