Significance of Nanotechnology in Construction Engineering

  title={Significance of Nanotechnology in Construction Engineering},
  author={Ashwani Kumar Rana and Shashi Bhushan Rana and Anjna Kumari and Vaishnav Kiran},
Nanotechnology is one of the most active research areas that encompass a number of disciplines including civil engineering and construction materials. Traditionally, nanotechnology has been concerned with developments in the fields of microelectronics, medicine and materials sciences. However, the potential for application of many of the developments in the nanotechnology field in the area of construction engineering is growing. In this paper a broad overview of the potential application of…
