- ICSHM 2019 7th International Conference on Self-Healing Materials Scope:ICSHM2019 invites the papers concerned with self-healing materials and the related science and technology. And is will not only reflect mechanism, materials, characterization and processing but also the potential of self-healing materials in applications. So, we open the symposium for “self-healing soft matter”, “self-healing hard matter”, “self-healing concreate ” and “Self-healing materials in industrial application”.Practical Inforamtion• Date: June 3-5, 2019• Venue: Osanbashi hall, Yokohama, Japan• Source: http://www.icshm2019.jp/index.html

- [행사정보]3rd ACF Symposium
- The main theme of the 3rd ACF Symposium is "Assessment and Intervention of Existing Structures." Nowadays, inspection, monitoring, evaluation, prediction, maintenance and intervention, and optimal life cycle management are the focus of intensive research and technical development and implementation. As a part of the Symposium, the Professor Tamon Ueda Special Session is planned to honor his accomplishments in the field of maintenance and repair. He is also one of the founders of ACF and ICCMC (International Committee on Concrete Model Code for Asia), and has made a sustained contribution to expand ACF activities. Theme :• Inspection and investigation • Condition assessment and performance-based assessment • Rehabilitation, including repair, strengthening, upgrade,and retrofit • Demolition, recycle and reuse • Codes, standards, and practice • Policy, strategy, and asset management • Other maintenance-relatedtopics • Special session in honor of Prof. Tamon Ueda Practical Information• Date: September 10-11, 2019• Venue: Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan• Source: http://www.eng.hokudai.ac.jp/acf2019/index.htm• Deadlines: February 28, 2019 (Abstract submission) June 15, 2019 (Full paper submission) July 15, 2019 (Final paper submission) July 30, 2019 (Early-bird registration)

- Researchers at the University of Cambridge are working on a self-healing concrete project. The team is using 'microencapsulation technologies', which is defined as a process by which very tiny droplets or particles of liquid or solid material are surrounded or coated with a continuous film of a polymeric material. The Department of Engineering’s Geotechnical and Environmental Research Group is developing microcapsules containing ‘healing’ agents – such as minerals, epoxy or polyurethane – which can be added to building materials to allow self-repair of small cracks which develop over time.Dr Livia Ribeiro de Souza, a postdoctoral researcher in the group, said: 'Many composite building materials used in the construction industry – such as concrete – suffer fatigue over time, developing small cracks. We are hoping to overcome this problem by adding microcapsules filled with ‘healing’ agents to the concrete before it is used. The idea is that, as cracks begin to form, they rupture the microcapsules, releasing their payload and stabilizing the material.''This approach requires the formation and functionalization of double emulsion microcapsules, which we have been producing with the help of microfluidics. We have been using a Dolomite Microfluidics system since 2014, and find that microfluidics offers much better control of particle size and composition than traditional emulsification polymerization techniques, simplifying the investigation and optimization of particle properties.'The Dolomite system has enabled the researchers to 'create functionalized microcapsules that bind more strongly to the cement matrix, while also having thinner shell walls and higher core retention, improving their self-healing properties'.
