Abstract

The use of self-healing agents in the production of concrete has garnered great interest in the research community worldwide. This is mainly because existing concrete has several limitations in terms of strength, ductility, durability and resistance to cracking. To overcome this problem, bio-concrete is used for self-healing and additional value-added features such as high durability, increased strength and lower water absorption capacity. Concrete structures are very susceptible to cracking and repairs. This makes the maintenance of concrete structures due to cracking difficult and costly. As a possible solution to this problem, this study investigates the introduction of self-healing materials in concrete.
