This mini symposium is intended to give insight into the recent research in the field of computational modelling of self-healing (SH) composite materials and structures. This includes various technical or biological material systems. The particular attention is at the constitutive modelling of phenomena including plastic, inelastic, damage and fracture behaviour of these structures. The modelling of material properties and structural performance recovery, following repeatable healing is also included. It is highly appreciated, but not exclusive, if numerical models have experimental validation and verification.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

—Constitutive modelling of SH behaviour
—Advanced and perspective application of these materials/structures
—Dynamic behaviour of SH materials and structures
—Computational efficiency optimisation
—Constitutive modelling of various material systems
—Fatigue testing of SH materials/structures
—Computational modelling of blast/impact behaviour of SH structures
—Computational modelling of SH materials in sandwich structures
—Computational modelling of chemical/ physical processes in SH materials/structures
