Self-Healing Composite Materials: From Designs to Applications provides a unique resource on self-healing composites for materials scientists and engineers in academia, as well as researchers involved in the aerospace, automotive, wind-generation, construction, consumer goods and marine industries. There is a huge demand for self-healing composites that respond to their environment like living matter. Unlike other composites, self-healing composites are combined with carbon materials and resins to form a recoverable composite material. This book covers the manufacturing, design and characterization of self-healing composites, including their morphological, structural, mechanical, thermal and electrical properties.

The title begins with mathematical background and then considers innovative approaches to physical modeling, analysis and design techniques, providing a robust knowledge of modern self-healing composites with commercial applications.

Key Features

  • Covers composite fabrication from polymer, nano oxides, epoxy and plastics
  • Gives detailed examples on how self-healing composites may be used
  • Provides readers with a robust knowledge of self-healing composites
  • Presents a unified approach to these human-friendly, commercially valuable materials


Scientists, materials scientists, and engineers working on self-healing composite materials; Researchers, including materials developers, working in industry including in aerospace, automotive, wind-generators, construction, consumer goods, and marine industries; Researchers in material science and engineering, and postgraduate students working on the manufacture and application of self-healing materials
