Abstract :

Cracks in concrete are unavoidable and are one of the intrinsic disadvantages of concrete. Water and other salts percolate through these cracks, corrosion initiates, and thus reduce the life of concrete. So there was a need to develop an inherent biomaterial, a self remediate the cracks in concrete. Bacterial concrete is such an inn which can successfully remediate cracks in concrete without any human intervention. This technique is highly desirable because the mineral precipitation induced as a result of microbial activities pollution free and natural. From the experimental investigations conducted, it was found that use of bacteria not only improves the strength and durability characteristics of concrete but also recovers the strength lost due to damage. produced per cubic meter of mix concrete projecting to a decrease of carbon dioxide emissions by the cement industry on a global scale.
