Abstract

The concrete structurers have various durability problems caused due to different environmental as well as physiological conditions and results in producing or giving a weak concrete, conventional concrete have certain limitations to form crack, there will be the presence of voids in concrete structures even its heavily compacted, therefore make the structure weak, here we introduced bacteria concrete, which contains micro-organism, mineralisation, which is mineral precipitation, this help in increasing the strength of concrete as well as its life span, it also have an ability heal itself when a crack is formed. This paper focuses in producing this bio concrete, which includes extraction of bacteria in nutrient broth and mixing those bacteria into concrete mix, and testing specimens for showing its compressive strength, it also details with the self-healing capacity of the concrete.
