WHAT WE DO

A large number of potential solutions are presented and initial synthesis and testing will be used to select a promising subset for larger scale synthesis and detailed testing. Assessment of the self‐healing capability and performance in cement and concrete laboratory samples will be conducted using accelerated corrosion or
chemical attack experimental set up including rapid chloride ingress electrochemical cells, staged corrosion experiments. Combined capsule systems that SD/SH both physical (RT1 / RT2 / RT3) and chemical damage will be investigated to assess compatibility and independent response to own damage.
