Under service conditions and because of environmental and climate changes, the concrete is at risk due to crack-induced durability problems. The consequences can be even more pronounced when concrete is exposed to specifically aggressive environmental conditions. This has been portrayed by rapid deterioration of relatively young concrete...

Self-healing concrete has attracted increasing attention of researchers and industry over the last decades. Given the brittle nature and the relatively low tensile strength of concrete, the occurrence of cracks is an almost unavoidable phenomenon affecting (reinforced) concrete structures. Cracks allow harmful agents present in the environment...

Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) are a family of biopolymers produced intracellular<br/>by a range of different bacteria.PHA have attracted widespread attention as<br/>an environmental friendly replacement of fossil-based polymers, because they<br/>have thermoplastic and/or elastomeric properties, and are also biobased and<br/>biodegradable.Moreover,...

Building with unfired earth (mud) is an ancient practice that is regaining popularity due to the rising concern about the impact of the construction sector on climate. However, the low image of earthen materials is a major barrier to its acceptance in India, and is caused due to its poor water resistance performance. This research focuses on...

The aim of this project was the development of the scientific basis for methodologies that enable the production of renewable sustainable cement (i.e. BioCement) based on ashes derived from the conversion of biomass residues. Within this project, biomass ash and derived products were developed at the laboratory scale, and their functionality was...

In concrete structures, it is always a preferable idea to prevent the damage before it happens rather than to repair it afterwards, since it is usually less costly and in some cases the damage detection is impossible. Temperature and humidity fluctuations and/or external loading can trigger micro-cracking on a concrete structure, which in turn...
