Abstrait:

The use of nano-particles is a current trend that may play an important role for improving the mechanical performance of Portland cement. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of nano-silica on Portland cement matrix. The particle size distribution of Portland cement matrix was modified by the incorporation of 11, 6.2, 3.1, 1.7, 0.85 and 0.42 wt.% of nano-silica. The water demand and the consumption of dispersant were adjusted, and the rheological properties of suspensions were analyzed through rotational rheometry. The mechanical performance of studied mixtures was evaluated by the compressive strength. The pore size distribution was measured by mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP), and the hydration was analyzed through X-ray diffractometry. The rheological behavior presented a considerable changed, as a consequence of high specific surface area of nano-particles. The optimum content of nano-silica, or the smaller quantity of nano-particles, that leads to the maximum strength gain, varied according to the water to solids ratio. An increasing on the hydration and a pore refinement were obtained due to the use of silica nanoparticles. The particle’s packing and the pozzolanic reaction were the two main effects of nano-silica on the microstructure of Portland cement matrix.
