Abstract

Concrete is the most used building material internationally, in spite of its limited lifespan. There are various deterioration mechanisms that reduce the life of this important material and many researchers have investigated different ways to extend the life of concrete buildings and infrastructure. One recent option for prolonging the life of concrete is self-healing concrete which has been investigated for a number of years. Different types of self-healing concretes have been investigated and this paper presents some performance results and areas where additional research is needed
