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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Nowadays the self-healing process efficiency in loaded structural materials is evaluated by studying the damage mechanisms. Based on fracture mechanics theories, the resistance to damage and the cracking recovery can be an indication of healing performance. Experimentally, the cracking behavior is quantified by measuring the fracture energy of...

Fibre reinforced polymer composite materials are becoming more widely adopted for high performance industrial applications. The hierarchical nature of these materials offers a unique opportunity to incorporate multi-functionality whilst maintaining their excellent mechanical properties. Ideally, multifunctional composites can be configured to...

Aqueous cement suspensions without aggregates have been commonly applied as a remedial technique in structural and geotechnical applications, often comprising part of the permanent infrastructure. These suspensions derive their mechanical characteristics and properties through the same hydration processes and binding chemistry as concrete; thus...

Simple methodorogy to evaluate availability of self-healing agent have been established from the investigation on the relationship between oxidation behavior of self-healing agent and self-healing phenomena. The consistency of the established methodology was discussed by comparison in the lower bound of the available temperature range of mullite...

Locally stiffened or ‘stringer’ - skin composite structures are extensively used for lightweight applications in the aerospace industry. Due to localised stiffening, stress concentrations arise which can initiate damage e.g. debonding or delamination, within the composite structure. Critically, this damage can propagate under fatigue loading...

In this work, we investigate the formation of self-healing systems that are able to recover more than once more than one (mechanical or other physical) functionality. To this aim composites were created consisting of a polysulfide thermoset rubber matrix having intrinsic self-healing properties filled with thermally/electrically conductive...

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...

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...

Preservation and renovation bitumen of pavement is a big problem for the whole world. Traditionally, application rejuvenators is the only one method that can restore the original properties of the pavements. However, some puzzles still restrict its successful usage. Microencapsulation is a promising method to apply rejuvenator in bitumen. These...

Bio-healing is a promising approach to enhancing natural self-healing and thus completely heal large micro-cracks (> 200 ?m) in cementitious materials. The aim of this research is to better understand bio-healing of cementitious materials in order to accelerate the healing kinetics and maximize sealing efficiency of large micro-cracks. The bio...
