Abstract – The recent researches on Nano materials and nano technologies have highlighted the potential use of these materials in various fields such as medicine, construction, automobile industry, etc., this is due to special characteristics of materials at the nano scale. Building materials domain can be one of the main beneficiaries of the researches, with applications that will improve the characteristics of concrete and steel, glass and insulating materials. Improving the material resistance and increasing of their durability will reduce environmental pollution by reducing the carbon footprint of the building. In this study by using nano particles (silica dioxide and titanium dioxide) which leads to densifying of the micro and nanostructure resulting in improved mechanical properties.
