About the Project
The very high specific surface area of CNT phenomenally increases the affect of Van der Waals forces. In this project the influence of dispersants on the mechanical properties of CNT/cement nanocomposite will be investigated by studying the rheological behaviour of the nanocomposite. Consequently the appropriate dispersant and CNT loading for significant enhancement of mechanical properties of CNT/cement nanocomposite will be established. Effect of air bubbles introduced during processing of the cement-based nanocomposite on the mechanical properties will be also investigated.
Fracture behaviour of nanocomposite beams will be tested and multiscale finite element will be used to simulate theses beams and to find the effect of CNT loading on the stress distribution and cracking mechanism of nanocomposite beams.
