In concrete, cracking is a common phenomenon due to its relatively low tensile strength‎ ‎, which occurs due to external loads and imposed deformations‎‎. The main research objective is to create a kind of self-healing concrete by employing mineral producing bacteria Bacillus pasteurii‎ to locate the rift in the most favourable circumstances for autogenous healing to take place. Self-healing concrete containing bacteria has been generated for this study through the application of bacterial self… 

Strength and durability performance of modified cement-based concrete incorporated immobilized bacteria

In the present study, binary cement-based concrete containing different concentration of immobilized bacteria is investigated, and its performance is evaluated based on the strength and durability characteristics.

Study on Strength and Durability Properties of Bacterial Concrete

The primary thought of this review is to assess the strength and durability properties of high strength concrete specimens by replacing cement with bacteria for healing cracks. Concrete is the most

A Biomineralization, Mechanical and Durability Features of Bacteria-Based Self-Healing Concrete—A State of the Art Review

Cracking is one of the main ways that concrete ages, allowing pollutants to seep within and potentially lowering the physical and mechanical strength and endurance of concrete structures. One of the

Self-Healing Performance Assessment of Bacterial-Based Concrete Using Machine Learning Approaches

Bacterial-based self-healing concrete (BSHC) is a well-known healing technology which has been investigated for a few decades for its excellent crack healing capacity. Nevertheless, considered as

Experimental Study on the Microbial Community Structure of the Sediment of Pi River under the Different pH in Winter

In order to solve the poor self-purification ability of low temperature water in winter, the microbial community structure in the sediment of Pi River water (located in West Anhui) was investigated

The photoelectron-imaging spectroscopic study and chemical bonding analysis of VO2−, NbO2− and TaO2−

The transition-metal di-oxides, namely VO2−, NbO2− and TaO2− have been studied using photoelectron velocity map imaging (PE-VMI) in combination with theoretical calculations. The adiabatic electron

Strength Enhancement of Cement Mortar using Microorganisms - An Experimental Study

The present study investigates the ability of microorganisms to enhance the compressive strength of cement sand mortar by the microbiologically induced calcite precipitation. Various microbiological

Microorganism Precipitation in Enhancing Concrete Properties

Microorganism is an unique living element and has the ability to precipitate minerals through the process of biomineralisation. The precipitation process occured naturally and most of the

Optimum concentration of Bacillus megaterium for strengthening structural concrete

Microbial calcite, a bio-based smart nanomaterial in concrete remediation

The concept of developing a biosealant in concrete remediation is based on unique microbial metabolic processes. A common soil microorganism, Sporosarcina pasteurii, can induce CaCO3 precipitation in

Remediation of Concrete Using Micro-Organisms

This paper describes an innovative biotechnology-utilizing, microbiologically-induced mineral precipitation for concrete remediation. Calcite precipitation induced by Bacillus pasteurii was studied

An Experimental Investigation on Improvement of Concrete Serviceability by using Bacterial Mineral Precipitation

- Concrete, a strong, durable material composed of cement, aggregate and water, is the most used building material in the world. Concrete has an ultimate load bearing capacity under compression but

Self Healing Concrete: A Biological Approach

Concrete can be considered as a kind of artificial rock with properties more or less similar to certain natural rocks. As it is strong, durable, and relatively cheap, concrete is, since almost two
