Matrix 6 Crack Version Software: A Review and Comparison - CNET
tracking capsule activation, release of solvent and crack healing during propagation of the crack. (a) 3d perspective and (b) plan views of 3d surface renderings of the region of interest (126.96.36.199mm3 (x, y, z)) showing the self-healing epoxy sample at several states during progressive loading to grow a crack. the matrix is rendered transparent, the filled capsules shown in yellow, empty capsules/crack in grey and the filled/healed crack in red. (c) 2d virtual greyscale slices intersecting the sample (and crack) at the location indicated a. the same equivalent slice is shown for each crack growth step. the black regions correspond to unfilled crack/capsules. the direction of crack growth is along z (right to left). the time stated for each step represents the approximate time accumulated since the scan for the initial unloaded step was started.

while various strategies (capsules, vascular and intrinsic healing) have been developed to deliver self-healing for different material classes (metals, ceramics, polymers), all rely on a mobile phase or reactive healing agent which can repair the crack. this is triggered either by the occurrence of damage itself (the ideal case, defined as autonomic self-healing), or by external stimuli (non-autonomic self-healing) such as heat or light or targeted triggers such as a laser beam, or inductive or resistive heating 1, 2 . after healing, the repair should have properties approaching that of the undamaged material, retaining structural integrity and extending the lifetime of the material. for structural polymeric materials one of the most successful approaches has been to incorporate microcapsules that are filled with a liquid healing agent (see fig. 1 ) 3 . when a crack propagates through the material the healing agent is released and becomes the mobile phase. polymerization of the healing agent is triggered by contact with an embedded catalyst, resulting in a bonding of the crack faces.
