Compacted clay layers are known as earth dams’ most common impermeable layer. However, owing to the specific nature of clay and Atterberg limits, an increase in age damage, these layers by cracking them. Despite this, the crack-healing property of clay is the main factor in closing external cracks. In this regard, in this study, a new method is use...

Science and technology of advanced materials
Self-healing materials have been recognized as a promising type of next-generation materials. Among them, self-healing ceramics play a particularly important role, and understanding them better is necessary. Therefore, in this study, we applied the oxidation kinetics-based constitutive model to finite element analysis of a series of damage-healing ...
When concrete is subjected to sustained load, it first deforms elastically and then continues to deform with time. The stress-induced time-dependent deformation is, by definition, creep. Creep plays an important role in view of the serviceability, durability and sometimes even the safety of concrete structures. Prediction of the long-term creep is ...
• DCPD coating on Mg exhibited self-healing behavior in Hank's and NS solutions. • DCPD was acted as not only a physical barrier but also a self-healing agent. • DCPD was sensitive to pH, and offered Ca2+ and PO43− ions for self-healing. • Hank's solution provided extra film-forming ions to promote self-healing behavior.

The main objectives of the current work were to investigate differences among flours from traditionally preserved Greek varieties of cereals, and especially those of wheat, and in parallel, to correlate those potential differences with the presence of bioactive natural ingredients. In this context, we developed a new, fast, and simple method for th...
Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences
A new specialised finite element for simulating the cracking and healing behaviour of quasi-brittle materials is presented. The element employs a strong discontinuity approach to represent displacement jumps associated with cracks. A particular feature of the work is the introduction of healing into the element formulation. The healing variables ar...
Abstract A model based on the concept of interface crack bridging and thermofluctuation theory is proposed for analyzing the efficiency of crack self-healing in composite materials in view of three main stages: (1) crack initiation and growth under external load, (2) self-healing activation, and (3) self-healing with partial or complete bond recove...

This paper presents a priority-based task distribution strategy as an extension to the Artificial Hormone System (AHS). The AHS is a distributed middleware based on self-organization principles. It allows to distribute tasks to processing nodes in a self-organizing way while neither having a single-point-of-failure nor requiring external user input...
