The use of nanotechnology is relatively new in civil engineering industry. Cement and concrete are weak in tension and self-monitoring capability. The modification of the cement matrix with nano particles improves the concrete properties and leads to build a better structure. Mixing of carbon-nanofiber (CNF) to concrete can improve the resistance of water penetration and also improves mechanical and electrical properties such as high Young’s modulus, improved fatigue resistance and self-monitoring behavior of concrete. In this paper, the advantages and need of nanotechnology in concrete is discusses.
