A new approach to self-healing systems is presented that aims to overcome the inherent drawbacks of conventional liquid resin based healing systems within composites. Finite embedded systems offer limited healing potential for small volume delaminations and as such cannot effectively heal large damage volumes often associated with shear damaged...

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...

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...

Reclaimed Asphalt (RA) is one of the largest fractions of raw materials used in road construction today. Probably over 90% of the total RA in the Netherlands is being reused in new asphalt constructions. RA contains aggregates coated with very hard bitumen (penetration grade of 10-20). During service, the bituminous binder loses its flexibility...

Epoxy E-51/UF resin microcapsules were prepared by traditional two-stepped in situ polymerization method and processing parameters affecting the final microcapsules’ shape and size were carefully studied in the aim to obtain microcapsule with ideally spherical shape and uniform size. It’s found the polycarboxylate surfactant of SMA (styrene...

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...

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...

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...

The thermally reversible Diels-Alder adducts are attractive building blocks for the design of intrinsic self-healing materials that do not have an additional healing agent but possess the capability to repair the damage through inherent reversibility of bonding into the polymer matrix. We report the development of new thermally responsive...

Crack is called the intrinsic flaw of concrete that is inevitable for concrete infrastructures during their service life. The presence of crack offer aggressive agent access to pass through, which has a direct impact on durability, therefore resulting in shortened service life. Nevertheless, the influence of crack on the durability can be...

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...

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...

Nature uses a combination of dynamic hydrogen bonds and static covalent bonds in e.g. the muscle sarcomer to achieve toughness in otherwise elastic materials. The dynamic bonds can open when a force is applied, thereby providing a stress-relieve mechanism to prevent rupturing of the covalent links. Upon release of external force the hydrogen...
