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...

For epoxy microcapsules embedded in concrete as mechanic-triggered self-healing adhesive, globular shape with uniform size is the basic requirement to ensure the solid shell broken and the liquid core released at a designed stress. In this paper, monodispersed melamine–formaldehyde (MF) resin-walled epoxy E-51 microcapsules were successfully...

Self-healing concrete is regarded as a promising solution to reduce the high maintenance and repair cost of concrete infrastructure. Due to the limited autogenous healing capacity of concrete as such, additives are needed to enhance its self-healing properties. Among various strategies, microbial-based self-healing has gained increasing...

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...

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....

Granulation technique, introducing the self-healing ability to concrete, was developed by Koide, 2010 [1] based on the capsulation technology in the food/medicine industry. In this research, self-healing granules, containing cement compounds, chemical and mineral admixtures, were fabricated by a proposed granulation process and the capability of...

Polymeric nano-materials utilization in reinforced concrete, aiming to deal with steel corrosion was developed in previous works. Promising results were obtained with PEO–b–PS nano-formations, both in terms of enhanced bulk matrix properties and improved steel corrosion resistance. Recent research has been focusing on a cheaper and commercially...

The presence of cracks may significantly affect the life-cycle of structures, as a results of its influence on the designed structural response vs. persistent or even severe accidental load and exposure conditions, when requested. Repairing damaged concrete in existing structures needs important investments to recover the pristine level of...

Cementitious materials are sensitive to crack formation and it would be beneficial if the material could stop the crack propagation, repair the damage and reach again the original liquid-tightness and/or strength. Therefore, a cementitious material with synthetic microfibres and superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) is proposed. Upon crack formation,...

Research has been carried out with the aim of better understanding the relevant properties of materials to be used in a new self-healing cementitious composite material system. The system consists of shape memory polymer tendons embedded within a cementitious matrix, upon heat activation these tendons undergo a shrinkage process which closes any...

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...
