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...

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...

Since self-healing of cracks is able to improve the durability of concrete structures, it has attracted much attention in the recent years. As known, in concrete matrix there are large amounts of cement grains remaining unhydrated, particularly in high performance concrete. Further hydration of these unhydrated cement grains has potential to...

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,...

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...

Ethylene-co-methacrylic acid (EMAA) based ionomers have thermo-mechanical properties strongly dependent on neutralization level of acid groups. Research revealed also how these materials are able to heal after ballistic impacts. In order to better understand the role of neutralization level on the Self-Healing (SH) behaviour, mechanical and...

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...

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...

Plants have inspired the development of numerous novel (self-)adaptive and selfhealing materials, structures and surfaces over the last decade. Examples include: (1) self-repairing elastomers for sealing gaskets and dampers inspired by self-healing processes in latex bearing plants, (2) self-adaptive biomimetic attachment systems inspired by...

Self-healing materials have the capabillity to repair (in an early stage) damage, that would finally lead to material failure. This repair or self-healing occurs with the help of a minor external stimulus or autonomously. Depending on the type of application one or the other is more interesting. Nature is the major source of inspiration for his...

A self-healing corrosion protective coating was developed using TiO2 particles and casein as pH-sensitive organic agents that is also environmentally friendly materials. A film structured of TiO2 particles was formed on a substrate (magnesium alloy) by dip-coating followed by immersion in a casein solution. Casein was inserted and fixed in the...
