Abstract: Abstract. Roadmaps were originally developed as tools for finding surface routes for getting from one place to another. Recently, the scope of a roadmap has been extended to cover tools used for indication of pathways for reaching predicted future developments, for assessing progress and indicating trends. This was applied to developments in application of Nanotechnology within the broad domain of Construction. The Roadmap for Nanotechnology in Construction (RoNaC) was first developed in 2003 as an aid for for… Show more

“…That is, rather than functional properties, the improvements on the bulk materials focus on the lightness, strength, and durability (Arora et al, 2014;Hanus and Harris, 2013;Pacheco-Torgal and Jalali, 2011;Sanchez and Sobolev, 2010;Bartos, 2009). For concrete, the main advances so far have been in understanding structures and processes on the smallest possible scale, which again paves way for engineering applications, most notably nanoreinforcements (Sanchez and Sobolev, 2010).…”

“…It is determined that other than thermal insulation, nanotechnology is also essential in addressing the needs of other building applications. In general, nanotechnology in buildings and construction has been researched upon [50][51][52][53][54][55], and a development roadmap for utilizing nanotechnology in construction has also been given [54][55]. Various nanoparticles [56][57][58][59][60][61] and carbon nanotubes [62][63][64][65][66][67] have been applied in different cement and concrete materials, typical for studying and attempting to enhance the mechanical properties.…”

“…The stabilization characteristics of Nanomaterials and the reaction chemistry are based Feynman's phenomenal work on: "manipulating and controlling things on a small scale" (Feynman, 1960). Some of the application and/or potential application areas discussed in extant literature include; design and construction, processes (Sobolev and Gutiérrez, 2005a,b;Rana et al, 2009), transportation engineering (Steyn, 2008), general construction applications (Bartos, 2006), concrete technology, (Sobolev and Gutiérrez, 2005a,b;Zydex Industries, 2010;Agrawal and Agrawal, 2011), general civil engineering applications (Boyd, 2010;Lee et al, 2010), geotechnical engineering (Taha, 2009;Ugwu et al, 2013), civil engineering materials (Kennep, 2006), and highways infrastructure: pavements (Liu et al, 2007;Ugwu et al, 2013). Ugwu et al (2013) discuss the reaction chemistry of Nanomaterial with the aim of facilitating a better understanding of the fundamental science that underpins the observed changes in soil geotechnical properties (i.e., hydrophobicity, plasticity, and swell potential).…”

“…Sin embargo, la introducción de estos componentes en la producción de hormigón aún está lejos de consolidarse debido a tres factores [4]: su relativa novedad, su coste, y las dificultades asociadas a su dispersión homogénea en fresco, cuestión que ha motivado el presente trabajo.…”
