SECEMIN: SElf-healing CEmentitous and MINeral building materials.
18.02.2013 - 18.02.2013
Aim of the current SBO-project (SIM SHE program on Engineered Self-Healing Materials) is to develop new routes and to further elaborate on concepts for autonomous self-healing of cementitious and mineral building materials. Important objectives are: - regain impermeability of the material and as such safeguard the durability of the structure ("sealing") - restore mechanical properties of the material (strength, stiffness,...) as far as possible ("healing") - limit crack width of building materials in order to facilitate self-healing. Part of the valorization of this SBO is incorporated in the SHE program by means of two ICON projects, PUrePair and SECEMIN.
