New book about nanomaterials in concrete

Published: 23 August 2021

Professor Andrzej Cwirzen, active in the subject of building materials at Luleå University of Technology, has written a new book, "Carbon Nanotubes and Carbon Nanofibers in Concrete — Advantages and Potential Risks".

This book focuses on the application of carbon nanotubes and carbon nanofibers in traditional concretes based on Portland cement. Fundamental information is given related to the production technologies of carbon nanotubes and carbon nanofibers, as well as concretes and methods of incorporation. It also contains a section focusing on the possible negative effects of carbon nanotubes and carbon nanofibers on animals and humans.

The book indicates benefits and possible problems related to the application of carbon nanotubes and carbon nanofibers in concrete. It is designed to be easy to access and digest for the reader, aiming to reach an audience, not only from academia, but also from the construction industry, materials producers, and contractors who might work with nanomaterials.
