A polymer-modified self-healing mortar is a mixture of Portland cement, water, sand, polymer and self-healing material. The polyacrylic ester emulsion (PAE) is used as polymer and as self-healing material bacterial spores from genus Bacillus + calcium lactate is used. The reason why this type of bacteria is used as a component of self-healing...

Commonly coatings are used to protect metals from corrosion. Different types of coatings are available and according to their characteristics they provide different levels of protection. In order to evaluate the performance of the coating, it is fundamental to have a methodology that is reliable and efficient even when applied to different kinds...

Research in the field of smart materials that exhibit self-repair mechanisms has greatly expanded over the last few years. This is especially true for polymers and polymer composite materials. One class of self-healing polymer materials is the reversible polymer network systems that use dynamic covalent bonds as a means to repair sustained...

Sol-gel technology is increasingly being used in coatings for corrosion protection and adhesion improvement. So far, the self-healing concept in sol-gel coatings has only been approached from extrinsic healing perspective (i.e. use of nano and micro carriers of corrosion inhibitors) [1]. Despite the benefits of this approach, the damaged area...

Sustainability or environment friendly green technology is based on the use of agents of biological origin that can mimic nature in their process applications. The production and use of conventional Portland cement is significant contributor to emission of greenhouse gases and the resultant global warming. Microbial induced carbonate...

In the last decade, an increasing attention has been given to the development of repairing capabilities in materials, with an emphasis in specific strategies that can promote self-healing, with or without external triggers. Self-healing has opened several new possibilities, especially in applications where long-term reliability is demanded and...

Bituminous materials form a class of materials that possess the intrinsic ability to selfheal. This self-healing capability is evidenced by the observation that the service life of these materials ‘in the field’ exceeds the service life as predicted by standard mechanical laboratory tests. This mismatch between laboratory prediction and field...

A functional experimental concrete system has been developed in our lab, in which a two component bacteria-based healing agent contained in a protective reservoir is included in the concrete mixture. Incorporated bacteria have the potential to produce copious amounts of calcium carbonate based crystals from supplied mineral precursor compounds....

After an artificial injury in succulent leaves of Delosperma cooperi and Delosperma ecklonis rapid wound sealing by deformation of the entire leaf takes place within approximately 90 minutes. On the basis of comparative anatomical and biomechanical analyses of the closely related species conclusions can be drawn on necessary boundary conditions...

This paper presents an investigation into the delamination toughening and selfhealing properties of carbon-epoxy laminates using through-thickness stitches of mendable thermoplastic (poly[ethylene-co-(methacrylic acid)]). The effect of increasing stitch density on the improvement to the interlaminar fracture toughness and healing of mode I...

Polyborosiloxanes (PBSs) are viscoelastic, transparent, colourless, self-healable polymer matrices, synthesized by reacting linear polydimethylsiloxanes (PDMSs) with boric acid (BA) above 150°C. BA takes part not only in cleaving the PDMS chains, but also contributes boronic-acid like moieties to the cleaved chain ends, which provide...

Marine concrete structures are exposed to one of the most hostile of natural environments. Many physical and chemical phenomena are usually interdependent and mutually reinforcing in the deterioration of marine exposed concrete: expansion and microcracking due to physical effects increases concrete permeability paving the way for harmful...

Fiber reinforced cementitious composite (FRCC) has a great capability for selfhealing of cracks. Concrete cracks with a sufficiently small crack width (below 0.1 mm) can be closed and self-healed by crystallization of calcium carbonate in the presence of moisture, even in the case of ordinary concrete. Such precipitation is caused by reaction of...
