Experimental Study of the mechanical behavior of self-healing polymer composite under heating cycles
Crack creation in composites is one of the most common failure reasons of those materials. Engineers were inspired by self-healing action in biological systems and used this innovation for the healing of different kinds of materials such as composites. In this study, using the self-healing approaches, micro-crack and damage healing of a epoxy-glass fibers composite were under consideration. So one series of hollow glass fibers were used to fabricate self-healing mechanism. These hollow fibers were filled by one self-healing agent which is one two-part epoxy resin. After the creation of undetectable micro-cracks and damages and also their encounter with hollow fibers’ walls, these hollow glass fibers will crack and the self-healing agent in them would flow into damage area that after some time it repairs the damage. The ain of the present study was to investigate the effect of heating cycles over time is restored in the composite. So consecutive temperature cycles (1, 3 and 5 cycle) in temperature were implemented in the range of 25-70 °C after damage creation in the sample. The results of bending tests show that a 74% healing efficiency can be gained after 7 days almost with 5 cycles of heat in mentioned temperature range only after one day.
