This chapter discusses the development of a materials science approach with an application to nanotechnology to optimize the processing and micro/nanoscale structure of cement-based materials reinforced with nanosized fibers and carbon nanotubes. The dispersion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) for use in cementitious composites and specifically the effect of ultrasonication energy are discussed in detail. The nanomechanical properties of the CNT/ CNF cementitious nanocomposites are examined through nanoindentation experiments. Additionally, the excellent reinforcing ability of

The recast of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on 19 May 2010. For new buildings, the recast fixes 2020 as the deadline for all new buildings to be “nearly zero energy” (and even sooner for public buildings – by the end of 2018). This book gives practitioner an important tool to tackle the challenges of building refurbishment towards nearly zero energy. This book is welcome at this time and sets

At the beginning of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the advent of digitalization, innovative technologies and materials, and new construction techniques have begun transforming the way that infrastructure, real estate, and other built assets can be designed, constructed, and operated in order to create a more attractive, energy-efficient, comfortable, affordable, safe, and sustainable built environment. Developments in materials and cutting-edge technologies (such as artificial intelligence, robotics, nanotechnology, 3D printing, and biotechnology) have finally started to move the construction towards a new

Since 1930 more than 100,000 new chemical compounds have been developed and insufficient information exists on the health assessment of 95 percent of these chemicals in which a relevant percentage are used in construction products. For instance Portland cement concrete, the most used material on the Planet (10.000 million tons/year that in the next 40 years will increase around 100 %) currently used in around 15% of total concrete production contains chemicals used to modify their properties, either in the fresh or hardened state.

Nanomaterials can be synthesized by physical, chemical, and biological methods; however, the latter technique is preferred as it is eco-friendly, non-toxic, and cost-effective. The green synthesized nanomaterials have been found to be more efficient with potential applications in diverse fields. It is crucial to explore green synthesized nanomaterials and the applications that can be made in order to support water remediation, pharmaceuticals, food processing, construction, and more. The Handbook of Research on Green Synthesis and Applications of Nanomaterials provides a
