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.

Special Issue JACT self healing

The Japan Concrete Institute published a special issue on Self Healing of Cementitious Materials.
You can download the aricles from here. In the special issue there is a publication on our Porous Network Concrete.


  1. concrete repair is tough stuff, but even concrete cracks and crumbles. Eventually, nature has her way. Moisture and temperature extremes make their presence known through damage to concrete floors, walks and structures. Fortunately, you can make simple concrete repair's yourself. concrete repair requires few tools and no special skills, but it does require a strong back.

  2. The topic " Reinforced Concrete " is a matter of concern for many civil engineering student. I have written an article on here to read my article.

  3. Nice Post! Keep sharing such nice information. Concrete Sealing

  4. Great blog you've got here. It's packed full of lots of information
