Pull-out Test Behavior for Graphene Nanoengineered Concrete

Suehail Aijaz Shah and Manzoor Ahmad Tantray


Cement concrete is the most commonly employed material in infrastructure development. The introduction of reinforcement with a higher tensile strength makes up for the relatively low tensile strength of cement in reinforced cement concrete. The effective load transmission between concrete and steel reinforcement by bonding action is one of the most crucial factors in the design of bar-reinforced concrete members. Being the material of the twenty-first century, graphene possesses several qualities, including high flexibility, Young’s modulus, and tensile strength. It is a suitable material for reinforced cementitious composite because of its exceptional qualities. Impermeable carbon-based nanoparticles with a high surface-to-volume ratio are known as graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs). GNPs are highly outstanding since they have greater mechanical, thermal, and barrier potential, attributed to their high aspect ratio and plate-like structure. GNPs with exceptional mechanical properties have been widely used as reinforcing materials in a variety of sectors. This study analyzes how the addition of graphene reinforcement to cement concrete can enhance its qualities. The compressive strength and bond strength of steel with concrete composite have been proven to be improved more effectively by GNPs. This research offers a fresh perspective on how GNPs have improved the cement composite.
