Abstract

In this paper, a fundamental study is carried out to develop a kind of intelligent concrete with self-healing capability allowing strength recovering. The proposed conceptual methodology is based on sensing, processing and actuating functions. In the method, crack repairing agents are used as 'Core' materials in 'Shell' bodies embedded in concrete structures. The feasibility of the proposed approach is verified experimentally by making use of glass pipes as shell bodies containing crack repairing agents.
