In recent years, numerous studies have been conducted on the crack-healing behavior of ceramic materials. Design of ceramic structures with the ability of crack-healing in service is one of the most important objectives of many scientists. Development of such structures in fuel cells, aerospace, automotive and military industries can save a lot of money from a maintenance cost viewpoint. This paper addresses the most recent findings from researchers in the field of crack-healing in ceramics and discusses future perspectives in this research area.
