Use of buffer treatment to utilize local non-alkali tolerant bacteria in microbial induced calcium carbonate sedimentation in concrete crack repair (2024)
Journal Article
Pianfuengfoo, S., Kongtunjanphuk, S., Zhang, H., & Sukontasukkul, P. (in press). Use of buffer treatment to utilize local non-alkali tolerant bacteria in microbial induced calcium carbonate sedimentation in concrete crack repair. Heliyon, Article e26776. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.heliyon.2024.e26776

Concrete often suffers cracks due to its low tensile strength. The repair process can vary ranging from surface coating, grouting, and strengthening. Microbial induced calcium carbonate sedimentation process (MICP) is a process of utilizing non-patho...
