RM4L is an EPSRC funded project being undertaken by researchers at Cardiff, Bath, Bradford and Cambridge Universities.

The project comprises four research themes which address: self-healing of cracks at multiple scales; self-healing of time-dependent and cyclic loading damage; self-diagnosis and immunisation against physical damage; and self-diagnosis and healing of chemical damage. Find out more about Research Themes>>

These themes bring together complementary technologies using laboratory experiments, numerical modelling and site trials which, under the guidance of the project’s industrial partners, will address a diverse range of applications such as cast in-situ and precast concrete, repair systems, overlays and geotechnical systems. The nature of the research is both varied and exciting, encompassing the fundamental physico-chemical actions of innovative healing systems.
