Experimental Study on Bacterial Cement Composites

Concrete in most structures is designed to crack in order to let embedded steel reinforcement take over tensile stresses. Crack formation is also a typical phenomenon related to durability. Percolation of cracks may lead to leakage problems or ingress of deleterious materials, causing deterioration of the concrete matrix or corrosion of embedded steel reinforcement. Durability can be enhanced by preventing further ingress of water and other substances. In recent years a bacteria-based self-healing concrete is being developed in order to extend the service life. A two component healing agent is added to the concrete mixture. The agent consists of bacteria and an organic mineral precursor compound. Self healing agents such as epoxy resins, bacteria, fiber are used to heal cracks in concrete. Among these, bacteria used in concrete are effective. When the bacteria is mixed with concrete the calcium carbonate precipitates forms and these precipitates filling the cracks and makes the crack free concrete. The state of art results in all projects show that material designed as self healing agents.
