Jason F. Patrick, Kevin R. Hart, Brett P. Krull, Charles E. Diesendruck, Jeffrey S. Moore, Scott R. White and Nancy R. Sottos Self-Healing: Continuous Self-Healing Life Cycle in Vascularized Structural Composites (Adv. Mater. 25/2014) Advanced Materials 26
By incorporating three-dimensional microvascular networks within a woven glass fiber-reinforced polymer composite N. R. Sottos, S. R. White, and co-workers demonstrate on page 4302 the full recovery (>100%) of mode-I fracture resistance after multiple damage events. This optical image of a fracture plane reveals efficient delivery, mixing and polymerization of the fluorescently dyed, two-part reactive healing chemistry.
