Abstract

In research on self-healing concrete, the restorative performance can be evaluated by a wide range of techniques. However, most of these techniques can be challenging to apply to concrete samples embedded in soil without causing a significant disturbance to the test (as they require removing the samples from the soil, washing off any residue, and examining and returning them). To provide a solution to this issue, we investigated the potential application of an in-situ, non-destructive method utilising electrical resistivity (embedded electrodes). The study was conducted on bio-mortar specimens incubated within saturated soil and water for 11 weeks. The bio-specimens were cast by adding expanded perlite impregnated with Bacillus subtilis and nutrients to the fresh mix. Standard cement mortar (without bacterial agents) was also tested to serve as control specimens. Additional testing (capillary rise and absolute porosity) was conducted under typical conditions to provide context for interpreting the changes in electrical resistivity in relation to the healing process. The bio-mortar showed greater improvements in electrical resistivity (accompanied by a reduction in crack area, water absorption and absolute porosity) than the control mortar. The study demonstrated that the electrical resistivity technique could potentially monitor the self-healing performance of concrete embedded in soil without disturbing the concrete-soil system.
