Abstract

Incorporation of graphene nano‐particles in concrete can improve mechanical properties and as a result has received growing attention in the research community. Despite the promise revealed in laboratory trials, there remain significant obstacles to widespread adoption of graphene in concrete at a construction level scale. This briefing paper gives an overview of the key outcomes from a recent experimental campaign and accompanying field trials where pioneering use of graphene enhanced concrete (GEC) has been successfully deployed at scale.
