Original Abstract

Carbon nanoparticles, whether in the form of nanotubes, fibers or graphenoids, can under suitable application improve mechanical as well as durability properties of cement composites. The use of carbon nanoparticles in concrete is limited by their relatively high cost but also by the difficulty of their dispersion in concrete. The experimental research was focused on the issue of dispersion of carbon nanotubes (CNT) and the effect of CNT in concrete. Concrete with different doses of multi-walled CNT (0.0015 % and 0.012 % from the weight of cement) was prepared. The dispersion of CNT, superplasticizing admixture based on polycarboxylate ether, and water was carried out using ultrasonic cavitator. The impact of various doses of CNT on the strength of concrete after 7 and 28 days and frost resistance of concrete after 100 cycles was observed. The best results were achieved with the addition of 0.012 % CNT of cement weight, representing a dose of 43.2 g per 1 m3 of concrete. The increase in compressive strength was 11.9 %, 17.3 % in flexural strength, 15.2 % in the tensile splitting strength and 26.9 % is the tensile strength of concrete surface layers after 28 days compared to the reference samples without CNT. Changes in properties of concrete with the addition of CNT were observed also in the case of frost resistance of concrete (8 % increase in the coefficient of frost resistance of concrete with the addition of 0.012 % CNT of cement weight)
