We have presented a series of recent results related to the various self-healing concepts and systems. Research of self-healing materials is an active and exciting field, with an increasing number of articles published every year. This research covers a wide spectrum of different materials and methods such as healing of concrete structures using embedded glass fibres and the more recent work on healing using shape memory alloy wires in a polymer composite, and/or the use of a multidimensional microvascular network for the healing applications.
