Paper Title:
A New Self Healing Method in Composite Laminates Using the Hollow Glass Fiber
  Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to obtain the least strength reduction and uttermost healing efficiency in a typical [(90/0)/(90/0)Hollow/90/(0/90) Hollow/90/(0/90) Hollow/(0/90)] self-healing laminate. It has been done using a hollow glass fiber (HGF) with a given diameter and an individual method to distribute the HGF in the host laminate. The results of three-point bend flexural strength testing indicated that for the investigated distribution, the inclusion of HGF imparts little reduction in undamaged strength (4%) which is due to the non-integrity of self-healing laminate related to the host laminate. After healing it was found that the laminate had a residual strength of 97% compared to the undamaged control and 100% compared to an undamaged self healing laminate.
