Abstract

Self-repair via embedded liquid filled hollow fibres provides a biomimetic approach to increase damage resistance in FRPs. A bespoke epoxy based self-healing agent is proposed and its ability to restore mechanical properties in CFRP is investigated. The healing efficiency is measured as a recovery of the residual compression strength after impact.
