One of the key objectives of nanotechnology is to develop our knowledge to manipulate matters at nanoscale level to create novel, smart, cost effective and eco-friendly macrostructures to improve quality of human life. Recent advancement in development of nano-materials and structures motivate engineers to design nano-modified smart, effective, high performance and sustainable macro-units. This volume contains recent research progresses on development and application on construction based nanomaterials, market potential, problems regarding conventional building system and nanostructures characterized by higher potency, greater robustness and resilience, increased speed of construction, and lessened environmental impact. It contains vivid discussion on methods, mechanical properties, electrical and resistive properties, thermal conductive and damping properties of nanomaterials like titanium dioxide and carbon nanotubes, ultra high pressure –sensitive cement based composites and their potential applications. Authors lucidly and ornately discussed about self cleaning rods, fabrics, electricity generating coatings, heating/ cooling installation systems, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) in automobiles, development of nano based structures for disaster protection, waste and pollutant treatment, aviation and land transportation systems, and their applications. Nanotechnology not only finds its use in building highways, dams, bridges and flyovers, but also in making eco-friendly and smart nano-surfaces in ceramics and glasses which currently holds a very potential market globally. This volume will not only expand the knowledge and enhance the analytical ability of the students and researchers, but also help the industrial scientists, engineers, constructors and developers, to address many unsolved problems regarding production and characterisation of construction materials and their prospective applications.
