Crack propagation in micro-encapsulated polymer for self-healing: numerical modelling and experimental validation

Author

Abstract
Self-healing materials are currently in several areas of research, from polymers to cementitious materials. These smart materials have the ability to repair damage caused by mechanical usage, such as cracks, avoiding or delaying the mechanical failure. Although self-healing materials are very attractive for several applications, it is important to know pros and cons. We have numerically studied the crack propagation in homogenous and micro-encapsulated polymers in order to model the behaviour of the self-healing polymers. The results will be used to design and optimize micro-encapsulated polymers for self-healing.
