Optimum MgO nanofiller for nano-reinforced concrete identified

Posted On: 2022-10-21

Concrete mixes are susceptible to fractures as they are generally semi-brittle. Incorporating nanomaterials in concrete mixtures is being hailed as the solution to these problems. When the dosage was kept within a small range, MgO nanoparticles greatly increased the fracture resistance, sorptivity, and porosity of cementitious composites.
