SMARTINCS will implement new life-cycle thinking and durability-based approaches to the concept and design of concrete structures, with self-healing concrete, repair mortars and grouts as key enabling technologies. This will create a breakthrough in the current practice of the construction industry, which is characterized by huge economic costs related to inspection, maintenance, repair and eventually demolition activities and additional indirect costs caused by traffic congestions during maintenance and environmental effects.

Yasmina Shields made a review that intends to provide a comprehensive overview of the current progress and limitations of the design approaches, fabrication methods, healing mechanisms, and relevant applications of embedded vascular networks.

 

The article has been published in the journal Smart Materials and Structures and can be found here: A review of vascular networks for self-healing applications

 

 

The market of self-healing concrete and self-healing cementitious repair mortars in Europe is expected to grow rapidly. In order to make this growth possible, SMARTINCS will establish a training and research network on prevention of deterioration of concrete structures by smart, self-healing, multifunctional strategies, supporting the European Commission’s aims to help the construction sector become more competitive, resource efficient and sustainable.

 

 

Use of self-healing cementitious materials is key for a sustainable future as it will lead to enhanced performance of concrete structures and spectacular extensions of the effectively realized service life; important environmental impact due to prolongation of the service life; and complete saving of the maintenance and repair actions by use of self-healing concrete/mortar.
