Abstract

Self-healing is receiving an increasing amount of interest worldwide as a method to autonomously address damage in materials. In particular, for advanced fibre reinforced polymer composite materials it offers an alternative to applying conservative damage tolerant design and potentially could remove the need to perform temporary repairs whilst simultaneously enhancing damage visualisation. The concept of an autonomic self-healing composite material, where initiation of repair is integral to the material, is now being considered for many engineering applications. This bio-inspired concept offers the designer an ability to incorporate secondary functional materials capable of counteracting service degradation whilst still achieving the primary, usually structural, requirement. Most materials in nature are themselves self-healing composite materials. This paper reviews the various self-healing technologies currently being developed for fibre reinforced polymeric composite materials, most of which are bioinspired. The paper also discusses work at Bristol to develop self-healing fibre reinforced composites incorporating resin tilled hollow fibres which can also incorporate a conspicuous dye substance to enhance damage visibility.
