Abstract

The new concept of structural health monitoring for polymer composites is presented by bio-inspired “bruisable” GFRP composite with inherent function of damage visual indication. Concept is undertaken by smart sensitive layer, based on fabric impregnated with a mixture of two suspensions - microcapsules with a leuco dye and microcapsules dye developer. The mechanical properties of the microcapsules were studied out to evaluate their effect on mechanical properties of the composite. During the work the results of the direct measurement of the microcapsule by AFM and effective properties of the microcapsules obtained by reverse calculations were compared.
