Experimental Research on the Self-Healing Performance of Micro-Cracks in Concrete Bridge
Hollow glass fiber with full of repair agent is embedded in concrete to repair components, and one - third point loading experiment is carried out to test the mechanical properties of it. Based on the strength analysis of specimens before and after self – healing, the self – healing effect of concrete is evaluated. By simulating the closed heal agent flowing and penetrating into the concrete crack surface under the capillary tension, the influence of crack width to the healing effect is analyzed.
