UWM researchers work to develop self-healing metals

Abstract:
In the film "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," the battle wounds of a liquid-metal man could heal themselves in seconds.

Now, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee scientists have developed self-healing metals that could be useful on the battlefield. They also could be used for quick repairs in machines ranging from automobiles to power plant turbines.

It's all part of research taking place at UWM, which has received a $1.2 million U.S. Army grant to find ways that manufacturers and foundries could use advanced materials in their products.

By using nanotechnology, where materials are altered at a molecular level, truck parts could have advanced properties but would still be easy to manufacture.
