British construction and engineering firm Costain has unveiled plans to help fund a three-year project to test the viability of self-healing concrete. The Materials for Life research project will be developed by three British universities. "Self-healing concrete could be a game-changer for the industry, with the potential to enhance durability, improve safety and dramatically reduce maintenance costs," said Andrea Green, project manager, and the products will be tested at several of Costain's project sites.
