Keywords: Activated repairing, automatic healing, crack, natural healing repair technique
Abstract:The Committee on Autogenous Healing in Cementitous Materials (Chairman: Shin-ichi Igarashi, Kanazawa University) has carried out its activities to reorganize past studies on the self-healing/-repairing function of concrete over two years (2007-2008). A survey of the literature including the latest research trends of the committee members was conducted with a particular focus on the mechanism of self-healing/-repairing, in order to classify and define the phenomena. The Committee also held a workshop/panel discussion during the annual convention of JCI in 2008, at which valuable knowledge form researchers in various spheres was accumulated, with discussion made on the required direction of fortune study.
