Abstract
In this Phase I SBIR program, RK Composites, Inc. (RKCI) will develop condition-based self healing systems for multifunctional composite materials. Our technology enables damage mitigation by pre-damage repair, inclusion of condition based monitoring, extensive and tailorable multifunctionality, and material modifications to improve the mechanical properties of high-strength advanced composites. In addition, our technique can be easily adapted to currently qualified composite materials and incorporated using conventional industry-standard fabrication techniques. In this project, the self healing methodology will be specifically tailored to provide damage mitigation under impact loading and high stress conditions.
