Re-healable concrete to undergo key outdoor testing

Bacterial spores are added to the concrete mix and they are activated by water.

A concrete that patches up cracks by itself is to undergo outdoor testing. The experimental concrete contains limestone-producing bacteria, which are activated by corrosive rainwater working its way into the structure.  This new material could potentially increase the service life of the concrete – with considerable cost savings as a result.
