The potential of superelastic shape memory alloy (SMA) fibers to enhance the damping capacity and toughness of a thermoset polymer matrix was evaluated. A single-fiber winder was designed and built to manufacture a pre-form consisting of 102 μm diameter SMA fibers aligned parallel to each other....
Predicting the elastic constants of braided composites has gained increasing importance over the years. This is mostly due to the broad use of the braided composites and the need to accurately predict their response during stiffness critical applications. This paper outlines an analytical study...
The present study is focused on the synthesis and characterization of vinyl ester/glass microballoon syntactic foams. Tensile and compressive properties of vinyl ester matrix syntactic foams are characterized. Results show that the compressive strength and moduli of several syntactic foam...
Commonly used fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) includes Carbon, Glass, and Aramid FRP composites. Meanwhile, some new FRPs such as PBO (Polypara-phenylene-Benzo-bis-Oxazole), PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate/Polyester), Dyneema, and Basalt have been gradually applied in recent years. Over the past...
This paper deals with steel fiber reinforced concrete mechanical static behaviour and with its classification with respect to fibers content and mix-design variations. A number of experimental tests were conducted to investigate uniaxial compressive strength and tensile strength. Different...
Animal silks and poly(lactic acid) (PLA) are potential materials for biomedical and bioengineering applications. Biodegradability of these materials thus is important to minimize any extra pain of patients with bone defects due to second operations for removing those non-biodegradable implants....
