The results of investigation of the cement composites modified with 5% of silica-magnetite nanostructures of the core-shell type are presented in the paper. The nanoindentation method employing three-sided pyramidal Berkovich indenter was used in the research. The mechanical properties and microstructure of the modified cement composites were evaluated on the basis of the values of hardness and indentation modulus measured inside the cement matrix and in the aggregate-paste interfacial zone. The results were compared with those obtained for the reference composites without nanostructures. The positive influence of the presence of silica-magnetite nanoparticles on the tested properties was found out.
