Original Paper


The nanotechnology is an integration to control the level of nanosize in construction materials and architectural developments. Nanotechnology is innovative technology for various applications such as building and construction materials and architecture. This technology has a important role in scientific development. The nano architecture have provided new ways to new smart buildings using new nanomaterials such nano metal oxide and carbon materials. In present study, it is focused in how to improve the mechanical properties of Portland cement based concrete with nanomaterials such as nanosilica and graphene for buildings applications. The addition of these nanomaterials to concrete mixes will give the better mechanical properties and resistant for nanohouse applications. The some studies based laboratory indicate that the strengths of the concrete is improved with nano-SiO2 properties. The compression strengths of the Portland cement is increased up to 18%. It is suggested that the nanomaterials based coating materials are better than the conventional coatings. The coating materials having self-cleaning properties can be prepared using various metal oxides such as TiO2 nanomaterials. The titanium oxide coating has the photocatalytical properties as well as an antimicrobial effect. In present study, it is clarified the new trends Nano architecture on the basis of nanomaterials. This technology will be a very good alternatives to save Money. Therefore, studying how to use smart and functional materials based nanomaterials in construction styles is increasing by scientists all over the World day by day.
