Abstract – In this present study by using nano particles (nano-silica and titanium dioxide) which leads to densifying of the micro and nanostructure resulting in improved mechanical properties. The addition of Sio2 and Tio2 with several weights with represents to cement improves excellent mechanical properties of concrete. In these we had added 0.1, 0.125, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75 and 0.1 percentage of Sio2 and Tio2. Nano-silica addition to cement based material can also control the degradation of the fundamentals C-S-H (Calcium- Silicate-Hydrate) reaction of concrete caused by calcium leaching in water as well as block water penetration and therefore lead to improvements in durability.
Keywords – nano-silica, degradation of the fundamentals, block water penetration
