Towards self-healing of concretewith natural wood fibres


An outlook to future concrete technology

 


Changing from damage prevention to damage management, thereby allowing some cracks in a structure as long as the cracks self-repair over time, is the basic concept behind self-healing materials. Following natures possibilities in transport using wood fibres, this paper describes how natural wood fibres can be used for self-healing.
