Influence of Nanostructured Fibers on Properties of Building Composites
Currently, interest in nanotechnology concept for cement composites is steadily growing. Results of investigations of the concrete surface, reinforced with nanostructured mineral fibers by using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and dynamic ultra-micro hardness tester (DUMHT) of the specific areas of surface are presented. For comparison plain concrete and concrete with addition of single mineral fibers investigated as well. The analysis of the obtained data has shown that as a result of the directed microdisperse structurization provided by nanoinitiators on a surface of fibers, increase strength and deformation characteristics of a material. The main objective of this paper is to research the mechanisms of pattern formation surface of the concrete contained the High-modulus basalt microfiber (HMBMF) as a solid carrier for nanoparticles.
