Advances in nanotechnology have opened up a wide range of opportunities for engineering properties of cementitious materials using nanoscale reinforcements. Development of this new class of cementitious composites has resulted in extensive academic and industrial research regarding the processing, characterization, and modeling of these materials. Nano materials, especially nano carbon materials (NCMs) including carbon nanofibers, carbon nanotubes, and nano graphite platelets, were found to be able to improve the mechanical property, durability, and functional properties of cementitious materials due to their excellent intrinsic properties and composition effects. This chapter introduces advances in NCM-filled cementitious composites with an aim at high-performance and multifunctional properties for structural applications. Key issues in research of NCM-filled cementitious composites (e.g., fabrication, properties, and mechanism) are addressed, along with challenges to add the reinforcing effect of NCMs to conventional cementitious composites and infrastructures made of them.
