In this paper, the anticipated challenges and future applications of self-healing composite materials are outlined. The progress made, from the classical literature to the most recent approaches, is summarized as follows: general history of current self-healing engineering materials, self-healing of structural composite materials, and self-healing under extreme conditions. Finally, the next stage of research on self-healing composites is discussed. View Full-Text
