Multifunctional materials and nanotechnology for assessing and monitoring civil infrastructures

K.J. Loh and D. Ryu,    University of California-Davis, USA

Abstract:

Multifunctional materials, or material systems intentionally encoded with a multitude of engineering functionalities, are revolutionizing civil engineering practice by offering new materials that can resist loads and self-sense for damage. These new developments have been made possible by technological breakthroughs in the nanotechnology domain. New nanomaterials with impressive properties and scalable manufacturing methods have enabled the design of these multifunctional materials or composite structures. The objective of this chapter is to showcase three types of nanotechnology-enabled ...
