Summary of Self-Healing Concrete PreparationIntroductionPreparation & ProductionCrack Seal EvaluaionConclusionDrawback of ConcreteConcrete can crack and when it cracks, it can cause corrosion of rebar, maintenance is required.Performance of S.H.CBio-mineralization Efficiency and lmbolization ofHealing AgentDrawbacks of S.H.CBio-mineralization With Ureolysis Break down ofurea into ammonia and carbon dioxide which is environmental unfriendly.Strength decrease due to porous healing agent carrier.Preparation of BacillusSubtilis1.

The indepth healing remains a challenge for thefuture researchers.With B. subtilis M9, self-healing concrete was produced with flexural strength of 4.2MPa according to 3-point-bending test. After 28 days of self-healing, the sealed beam flexural strength subjected to second time bending was enhanced about average 14o/o strength recovery rate. Still the strength regain capability needs to be further improved for field study to achieve 50% strength recover by self-healing.Submitted To : Dr. Thanakorn PheeraphanName: Mohammad Abdus Saker ID: st122611
