Concrete is a brittle composite cementitious material that easily fractures under tensile loading. Microcracks can appear throughout the concrete prior to application of any load because of temperature-induced strain and autogenous and drying shrinkage. There is no doubt that these cracks provide preferential access for aggressive agents to...

In this paper, the proposed coupled transport-reaction model adapted to simulate autogenous self-healing in Portland cement paste is validated with the experimental results. The parameters are studied for modelling the dissolution of cement, the diffusion of ions between the solution in the crack and in the bulk paste and the precipitation of...

In this study, a coupled transport-reaction model was specifically developed for simulating autogenous self-healing in cementitious materials. The diffusion of ions between the solution in the crack and in the bulk paste is simulated with a transport model. The concentration of ions in the crack can be calculated. As the kinetics of chemical...
