Self-healing of mechanical properties: Evaluation by tensile testing

Alexander Yarin, Min Wook Lee, Seongpil An, Suk Goo Yoon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this Section the evaluation of the mechanical consequences of self-healing is discussed. In particular, the recovery of such mechanical properties as stiffness is addressed. The tensile testing of self-healing composites with different types of fibers are analyzed in Sects. 7.1 and 7.2.
