A Mathematical Model of a Chemical Reaction Mechanism for Self-healing Cement
Joseph E. Bell, Dr. Tuwaner Lamar

Cement structures play an integral role in modern day society but can suffer from many ailments. These ailments usually start as cracks in the cement. Research has been done to create a type of cement that will heal itself with the aid of Aspergillusnidulans fungi. The goal of this project is to use the data gathered from this research and create a mathematical model. Using concepts from physical chemistry and different equations this model will serve as a standard for this research.
