Abstract

Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) reinforced with well dispersed carbon nanotubes (CNTs) was successfully produced. The segregation resistance of fresh CNT-SCC mixture was assessed by conducting a non-destructive electrical resistivity technique. The addition of CNTs resulted in a more homogenous mixture as the CNT-SCC exhibited consistent resistivity values between different electrode pairs along the investigated column. The reinforcing efficiency of the CNTs was also demonstrated by improvements in flexural strength (53%), Young’s modulus (68%), and flexural toughness (38%).
