Experimental Investigation on Strength and Durability of Graphene Nanoengineered Concrete

• Science Direct

Highlights

•Graphene is the wonder material of the century having excellent tensile strength.

•A Surfactant functionalised graphene is made from liquid shear exfoliation process.

•Sodium laureth sulphate and linear alkylbenzene sulfonates are used as surfactant.It is named as SLES-Graphene (SG).

•SG powder dispersed water solution is used to make concrete and then investigated.

•The SG Nanoengineered concrete has demonstrated very good strength.

•The results were validated by Analysis of Variants (ANOVA) for enhanced confidence.

•SG concrete may help to achieve a sustainable development in construction industry.
