A new approach to self-healing systems is presented that aims to overcome the inherent drawbacks of conventional liquid resin based healing systems within composites. Finite embedded systems offer limited healing potential for small volume delaminations and as such cannot effectively heal large damage volumes often associated with shear damaged...

In the last decade, an increasing attention has been given to the development of repairing capabilities in materials, with an emphasis in specific strategies that can promote self-healing, with or without external triggers. Self-healing has opened several new possibilities, especially in applications where long-term reliability is demanded and...

Fibre-reinforced polymers development has been driven by the need for materials that combine high stiffness and low density, but composites based on thermoset matrices tend to remain sensitive to damage, that may occur early in the matrix. Improved efficiency could be gained by integrating functionalities into the structure, namely a self...
