Self healing concrete with bacteria

Micro-cracks are inherently present in concrete. This causes degradation of concrete leading to ingress of deleterious substances into concrete, resulting in deterioration of structures. Due to this concrete needs to be rehabilitated. To surmount these situations self-healing techniques are adopted. By the addition of urease engendering bacteria along with calcium source results in calcite precipitation in concrete.
