    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review


    The project HEALCON, which deals with self-healing concrete to create durable and sustainable concrete structures, is funded by EU-FP7 and started in January 2013. The coordinator is Prof. De Belie and the partners are UGent, Avecom, TU Delft, Acciona, TUM, TTI, VTT, COWI, DTI, CEINNMAT, Devan and Fescon. Different healing agents and encapsulation techniques are developed and scaled up. Finally the efficiency is validated in a large scale lab test and implemented in an actual concrete structure.
