The authors have demonstrated previously that reinforcing glass fibres can be used as light-guides to facilitate chemical process monitoring and structural integrity assessment of fibre reinforced composites. In the current paper, the authors explore concepts for the development of self-sensing, self-healing and crack-arrestor composites. The first part of the papers presents a brief overview of previously reported technologies for self-sensing, self-healing and crack-arrestor; the advantages and disadvantages of the various technologies are discussed. The second part of this paper present the design concept and performance requirements for the self-sensing, self-healing and crack-arrestor composites. The final part of the paper presents preliminary results on the manufacture and evaluation of this class of composite.
