Concrete cracking is inevitable, and can be the result of one or a combination of factors such as dry shrinkage, thermal contraction, fatigue, and embedded steel corrosion. The presence of cracks leads to further deterioration, service life reduction of concrete infrastructure, and frequent maintenance and repairs. These challenges can be...

In order to limit the release of CO2 produced in cement manufacturing, clinker (the major cement component) is often partially replaced by mineral admixtures like blastfurnace slag. The use of mineral admixtures presents different advantages such as the recycling of industrial waste and the improvement of different material properties ...

Recent developments in self-healing technology inspired by natural biological materials have the potential to dramatically improve the performance and durability of cementitious materials. These self-healing cementitious materials comprise artificial flow networks embedded within the cementitious matrix that upon damage release healing agents...

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...
