Abstract:

Nanotechnology is one of the extreme active research area and development activity that has been growing explosively worldwide in the past few years. Nanoparticle belongs to be promising materials in the field of Civil Engineering. The main aim of this study is to constitute a blended mortar with high mechanical properties. The influence of nano-particle on the mechanical properties such as compressive strength and split tensile strength of mortar were experimentally studied. The nano-particle used in this study was nano-Zinc oxide (NZno) with the average particle size of 60nm. The blended cement used in this study consists of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) and nano-zinc oxide particle. The cement was partially substituted by NZno of 0, 1, 3 and 5% by weight of cement. The blended mortar was prepared using cement-sand ratio of 1:2 by weight with constant water-binder ratio. The compressive strength and split tensile strength of mortar at 7 and 28 days were studied. The results show that the mechanical strength of sample comprising 3% and 5% ZnO nanoparticles are desired than traditional mortar. As a result, it is possible to add nano-ZnO particles to improve the mechanical properties of cement mortar.
