This paper reports results of micro/nano-scale mechanical characterisation of the cement-based materials at micro/nano-scale using various available mapping techniques. Two new techniques: Express Nanoindentation Test option by Agilent Technologies and PeakForce QNM by Bruker were applied to mapping mechanical properties of cement-based materials, together with the use of conventional nanoindentation technique. Preliminary test results as well as advantages and limitations for the different techniques were discussed.
