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...

Concrete constructions in the marine environment suffer from chemical attack of sea salts which can induce damage to both the concrete matrix and embedded steel reinforcement. For example, ingress of sulfate and chloride ions can respectively result in detrimental ettringite formation and enhanced corrosion of the steel rebars. The first...

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...

Poly (urea-formaldehyde) (PUF) shelled dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) microcapsules were prepared by in-situ polymerization technology for self-healing concrete applications. It’s found, during the process, sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate (SDBS) behaves better in emulsification of DCPD than other surfactant of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) and styrene...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Structural ceramics like alumina are usually brittle and sensitive to flaws leading to a reduction in their mechanical properties. This situation is worsened by machining prior to service and during service by contact, which introduces micro cracks and hidden damages. Crack damage can easily be developed in such ceramics when loaded, which often...

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...

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...
