Abstract: This work focuses on studying the addition of nano-size additives (SiO2 locally synthesized in Prof. Bumajdad laboratory using novel methods) to cement paste and mortar and test the effect of such additives to the physical and mechanical behavior of the materials. The focus will be given to novel SiO2 synthesis strategy and also to the porosity and the water structure inside the paste and mortar. For the first time here at Kuwait University, NMR, FTIR and water vapor adsorption will be employed as a probe for porosity and water structure types. It is hoped that such additives will enhance the mechanical properties and the durability of the cements paste and mortar. The multidisciplinary nano-science and nanotechnology potentially offers the opportunity to enhance the understanding and/or performance of cement paste, mortar and concrete behavior and properties. Concrete is made from a properly proportioned mixture of hydraulic cement, water, fine and coarse aggregates, and often, chemical or mineral admixtures. The most common hydraulic cement used in construction today is Portland cement.
