Self Healing Concrete

Self Healing Materials is a new research area that gets a lot of attention in recent years. Self Healing Concrete is a term that is used for cement-based materials that repair themselves after the material or structure gets damaged due to some sort of deterioration mechanism.

In this blog we will update you on the progress of the Self Healing Concrete projects running in the section Materials & Environment and the Microlab of the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University.

This blog contains a description of the running projects that are financed by AgentschapNL, DCMat, STW and industrial partners. Also a page "Literature & Videos" is included where a lot of publications can be found.

Stamps on "Bacterial Concrete"

Did you know that you can buy stamps with the Bacteria that we use in our Bacterial Concrete.

The Dutch Society of Microbiologists had their 100th anniversary and to cellebrate this Stamps of different species of Bacteria were given out. The Bacteria we put in our concrete are on one of the stamps.
