New Materials and Technologies Used in Civil Infrastructure

The end of the previous and the beginning of the current century have witnessed the investment of considerable funds into the research in construction industry with the aim of improving and modernising the profession so that it becomes environmentally sustainable. The paper gives examples of the use of 3D technology in printing concrete for infrastructure facilities in Europe and the world. The examples of innovative solutions in infrastructure facilities have been listed, such as the use of nanoengineering and multifunctional composite materials with superior mechanical properties and durability. Road safety, durability, profitability and sustainability can be improved by using nanotechnology and nanomaterials. The paper also brings the examples of trial segments of smart and solar roads and highways, as well as kinetic roads in Europe, China and USA.
