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.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
