In view of the inevitable damage due to interlaminar as well as intralaminar fracture in laminated composites the concept of healing is endorsed in this research proposal. Presently, most of the industrial and academic research highlights the development of healable polymer composites with single step healing. This proposal is based on the development of innovative repeatable healing enabled fiber reinforced laminated composite (FRP) and their evaluation to recommend them as next generation smart composites.
