Poly(ethylene-co-methacrylic acid) (EMAA) ionomers have shown healing capabilities in both ballistic and static tests. In previous studies it was shown that the degree of crosslinking (clusters) affects (positively or negatively) the healing under impact tests. Moreover, it has also been reported that the modification of the ionomers by...

A functional experimental concrete system has been developed in our lab, in which a two component bacteria-based healing agent contained in a protective reservoir is included in the concrete mixture. Incorporated bacteria have the potential to produce copious amounts of calcium carbonate based crystals from supplied mineral precursor compounds....

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...

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...

The CaCO3-mineralizing bacteria from different taxonomic groups have shown potential in restoration of construction material such as concretes, cements and stony materials. However, these strains are far from the demand of practical application due to some shortages, including the low mineralizing capacity. In this work, an integrated high...

Self-assembled systems formed of micelles or vesicles have frequently been discussed as model systems for self-healing materials because their structure is dictated by thermodynamics and hence they quickly restore upon perturbation. In this aspect, they mimic many natural systems such as biological cells. However, in contrast to most synthetic...

Crack healing in ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) may be realized by embedding Mo-Si based particles in the thermal barrier coating. Upon cracking, these particles are exposed to oxygen that permeates through the top layer and the crack gap is filled with SiO2 which is produced from oxidation at high temperature. Due to its amorphous...

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...

Steels are among the most widely used construction materials as their mechanical properties can be tuned over a very wide range of desired combinations of strength formability and other properties. However, when exposed for long times to high temperatures steel components can exhibit premature and low-ductility creep fracture, which arises from...

A long-lasting barrier protection at damaged sites of coated system can be achieved by means of an active response of the primer. This may be attained through the release of reactive liquids from dispersed containers, the increase of the local mobility of the polymeric network, or the expansion of (dispersed elements in) the primer [1]. Such...

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...

Many types of healing agents have been investigated. These agents are processed in different ways, such as adhesive polymer in capsules or hollow fibre glasses, bacteria in porous aggregates and geo-materials directly incorporated in the cementbased materials. In this study, sodium silicate powder is encapsulated in polystyrene particles ...

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...

Polymeric nano-materials utilization in reinforced concrete, aiming to deal with steel corrosion was developed in previous works. Promising results were obtained with PEO–b–PS nano-formations, both in terms of enhanced bulk matrix properties and improved steel corrosion resistance. Recent research has been focusing on a cheaper and commercially...

Recently, encapsulated silyl esters have been shown to act as efficient healing agents for self-healing anticorrosive coatings. While the positive protective effects were irrefutable, the actual protection mechanism has not been clarified yet. In this study, x-ray computed ?-tomography and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy have been...

Encapsulation of reactive agents embedded within a matrix is the most studied concept to develop self-healing materials. The most common approaches employ either a single component with catalyst dispersed in the matrix or a single environment-reactive component for corrosion protection [1]. Recently an approach for corrosion protection based on...

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...

The oxidation crack healing of Cr2AlC and Cr2(Al,Si)C was studied and compared with known healing of Ti2AlC. The oxidation induced crack healing of Ti2AlC is relatively fast and leads to full strength recovery, but the oxidation product contains besides ?-Al2O3 also undesired TiO2. However, when oxidizing Cr2AlC only ?-Al2O3 is formed, but full...

Polymers reinforced with high performance fibres are successfully replacing metal alloys in lightweight aircraft structures. A critical factor in structural design is the resistance of a structure to progressive damage which develops during its service time. The brittle nature of matrix cracking is the main source of composite failure initiating...
