Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of graphene nanoplatelets (GNP) on the compressive strength of concrete. In the experimental campaign, several dosages of GNP (0.00%, 0.05%, 0.10%, 0.15%, and 0.20% by weight of cement) were included in the concrete mixtures. First, in the fresh state, the rheology of concrete was observed and accordingly the dosage of superplasticizer (SP) was altered  to obtain the workable slump. A further experimental investigation was conducted on the compressive strength of concrete cubes. According to the observed results, GNP addition is capable of significantly improving the mechanical properties of concrete. With the addition of 0.05% of GNP, there was a significant improvement in the compressive strength of concrete. This research demonstrates that GNP also can transform conventional construction materials into smarter, stronger, and more durable advanced composites in the construction field.

The study focuses on the production of graphene nano engineered concrete, which will be crucial in the future for a sustainable building industry solution.
