Abstract

Improved autogenous healing capacity of concrete using superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) was used as an efficient approach for mitigating damage between steel rebar and self-consolidating concrete (SCC). The results for normal concrete (NC) and those for SCC mixtures were compared. Two SAPs with different particle sizes and chemical compositions were used in the experimental program. Results showed that despite the greater reduction effect of SAP with a smaller particle size on compressive strength, SCC containing this type of SAP had the highest bond strength in uncracked specimens, compared with SAP with larger particle sizes, for SAP-modified NC and SCC mixtures. Moreover, results showed that SCC and NC containing SAP had considerably greater healing improvement factors for large crack widths (w≥0.30  mm) compared with mixtures without polymers; almost 46%, 30%, and 24% healing improvement factors were obtained for average bond stress, bond strength, and residual bond stress of SAP-containing concrete mixtures, respectively. Furthermore, complete strength recovery (100% healing improvement factor) was obtained for SCC mixture with w=0.10  mm after a 28-day healing period.
