This article deals with the axial wave propagation properties of a coupled nanorod system with consideration of small scale effects. The nonlocal elasticity theory has been incorporated into classical rod/bar model to capture unique features of the coupled nanorods under the umbrella of continuum...
The results of drop-weight impact tests and compression after impact (CAI) tests on carbon/epoxy laminates are presented. The experiments were carried out on specimens of two different geometries (rectangular and circular), according to two ASTM standards. Laminates of small thickness, thus prone...
Nickel aluminide intermetallic is being considered as a structural component for high temperature applications. A large number of investigations have been reported on the mechanical properties of nickel aluminides but very little has been reported on the mechanical properties of nickel aluminides...
