Paper Abstract

This research aims in characterizing modified cement mortar with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that act as nanoreinforcements leading to the development of innovative materials possessing multi-functionality and smartness. Such multifunctional properties include enhanced mechanical behavior, electrical and thermal conductivity, and piezo-electric characteristics. The effective thermal properties of the modified nano-composites were evaluated using IR Thermography. The electrical resistivity was measured with a contact test method using a custom made apparatus and applying a known D.C. voltage. To eliminate any polarization effects the specimens were dried in an oven before testing. In this work, the thermal and electrical properties of the nano-modified materials were studied by nondestructively monitoring their structural integrity in real time using the intrinsic multi-functional properties of the material as damage sensors.
