Background: Treatment of eye conditions, such as retinal detachment, macular pucker or macular holes, ask for an intervention named ”vitrectomy”. In a vitrectomy, multiple surgical instruments are brought into the eye, to facilitate removal of the vitreous humor. The instruments enter the eye through trocar ports that are placed in the sclera....

Study of self-sealing and self-healing in clay is a fascinating topic which can be applied in many fields namely in construction sector or as the underground nuclear waste repository. However, lack of references still hinders the advancement of such field. Meanwhile, more advance researches are available for self-sealing and self-healing in...

Recently the concept of crack self-sealing has been investigated as a method to prevent degradation and/or loss of functionality of cracked concrete elements. To obtain self-sealing effect in the crack, water swelling admixtures such as superabsorbent polymers (SAP) are added into the cementitious mix. In order to design such self-sealing...

Water ingress into cracked concrete structures is a serious problem, as it can cause leakage and reinforcement corrosion and thus reduce functionality and safety of the structures. In this study, the application of water-swelling rubber particles for providing the cracked concrete a self-sealing function was developed. The feasibility of...

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,...

After an artificial injury in succulent leaves of Delosperma cooperi and Delosperma ecklonis rapid wound sealing by deformation of the entire leaf takes place within approximately 90 minutes. On the basis of comparative anatomical and biomechanical analyses of the closely related species conclusions can be drawn on necessary boundary conditions...
