The adhesively bonded structure has to be replaced after the crack initiation and propagation. In a previous study, a biomimic two-step self-healing scheme (close-then-heal) by mimicking human skin has been proposed for self-healing structural-length scale damage. The adhesively bonded joint are prepared and to invest its feasibility and repeatability by fabricating a composite adhesive bonded joint with thermoplastic particles dispersed in a most commonly used epoxy based adhesive material. The fractured specimens were healed per the close-then-heal mechanism and tested again to fracture. This fracture-healing test lasted for 3 cycles.
