Physical Sciences Inc. and the University of Delaware propose a novel self-healing, damage-sensing, electromagnetic shielding, reinforced polymer composite concept for use in degradation-resistant structural applications. A Phase I program is planned to demonstrate the feasibility of the key elements of our multifunctional material concept. It will include characterization of stability and self-healing functionality over a wide range of temperatures, evaluation of the damage-sensing capability of the composite, and development of microencapsulation technique for containment of self-healing reagents. Addition of the electromagnetic shielding capability will be part of the Phase II program, which will result in a multifunctional, degradation-resistant composite prototype.
