This project investigates the effect of microcapsule size on the mechanical properties of a self-healing polymer composite. Three different sets of tensile bars were made from an epoxy with each set containing a different size microcapsule at a fixed concentration. Uniaxial tensile tests were performed to determine Young’s modulus and ultimate tensile strength. It was found that Young’s modulus decreased as microcapsule size increased. No correlation was found between ultimate tensile strength… Expand
