This paper briefly reviews a distinct and efficient numerical approach to quasi-static analysis of nanomaterials at finite temperature: molecular statistical thermodynamics (MST), especially its various applications and efficiency. Different from molecular dynamics (MD) based on Newton equations,...
This paper studies the electrical and mechanical responses of cracked carbon nanotube (CNT)-based polymer composites. Tensile tests were performed on single-edge cracked plate specimens of the nanocomposites at room temperature and liquid nitrogen temperature (77 K), and the electrical resistance...
Interlaminar shear properties of fibre reinforced polymer composites are important in many structural applications. Matrix modification is an effective way to improve the composite interlaminar shear properties. In this paper, diglycidyl ether of bisphenol-F/diethyl toluene diamine system is used...
