Self-Healing of Mechanical Properties: Evaluation by Tensile Testing
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.
