This paper considers the loss of extensional stiffness of synchronous belts through the life of the belt. It is shown experimentally that the belt extensional stiffness reduces initially with running time, before levelling out to remain constant. The stiffness loss is considered to arise from the...
In this paper, thermal residual stresses in multi-layered and compositionally graded plates and coatings were analyzed. Systematic studies on effects of different material combinations, including the compositional gradient, the elastic modulus, the coefficient of thermal expansion, and the number...
