Video of the Week: Science and application behind self-healing materials

By / January 24, 2011

[flash preview=force] Last month we reported on ACerS member Henry Sodano‘s work at Arizona State University with self-healing polymers that mimic the natural healing mechanism found in bones. Based on shape memory polymers containing a closed-loop fiber optic network, the material successfully pairs healing with a method to prevent damage propagation. Sodano spoke on…
