Abstract: Unlike conventional concrete and fiber reinforced concrete, Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC) display closely spaced multiple microcracks through strain/deflection-hardening response when subjected to tension-based loadings. These multiple microcracks allow ECC to be characterized with inherent autogenous self-healing capability. With the emergence of cement-based composites exhibiting multiple tight cracking, possibility for favoring the intrinsic self-healing behavior increased. Self-healing phenomenon in cementitious composites is being studied extensively nowadays. Although, great number of tests utilized to evaluate the self-healing mechanism in cementitious composites, implementation can be time consuming in some occasions and results from different tests may not always well-suit. Thus, different from other studies in literature, direct electrical impedance (EI) measurements were used in the present study to evaluate the self-healing performance of ECC mixtures along with rapid chloride permeability test (RCPT) and resonant frequency (RF) measurements. Experimental results revealed that EI testing is rather easy to perform and takes very limited time but it seems that the method itself is markedly influenced by anything modifying ionic state of specimens. Therefore, it looks like a hard task to very accurately assess the self-healing performance of ECC specimens considering the fact that both ongoing hydration and calcium carbonate precipitation which are regarded to be the main mechanisms contributing to the autogenous self-healing significantly changes the specimens’ pore solution chemistry. Well-fitting exponential relationship exists between EI and RCPT measurements at different ages regardless of the mixture and specimen type. However, results from RF tests do not correlate either with EI or RCPT results which is attributed to the different parameters having paramount influence on the individual tests. Although results from different tests do not always correlate well among themselves, three different tests used for the present study are capable of monitoring the self-healing behavior with differing efficiencies. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
