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...

Bacterially induced calcium carbonate precipitation has received considerable attention for its potential application in enforcing or repairing construction material. The mechanism of bacterially mediated calcite precipitation in those studies is primarily based on the enzymatic hydrolysis of urea. Besides calcite precipitation, this reaction...

Bacteria induced calcite precipitation has been proven to be effective in making concrete structure self-healing. In Microlab TU Delft, the concept has been enhanced by developing a liquid bacteria-based concrete repair system. The solution contains calcite precipitating bacteria, nutrients and buffer compound which may demonstrate high...
