Thermoplastic starch (MaterBi) composites reinforced with quasi-unidirectional flax fiber in cross-ply (CP) arrangement were produced by film stacking followed by hot pressing. These composites, containing various amount of flax, failed ductilely with pronounced crack growth. Therefore, to...
In this paper an attempt has been made to check the extent of validity of the Tsai-Hill equation applied to polymer–polymer microfibril reinforced composites (MFCs), in which the reinforcing elements represent microfibrils with diameters around 1 μm and aspect ratios of approximately 100. For...
The consolidation of a commercial thermoset resin has been completely monitored by using a unique fiber optic sensor integrating a refractometer and a fiber Bragg grating. In particular, the advancement and the evolution of the resin polymerization reaction have been followed by measuring the...
An epoxy-based nanocomposite containing graphite powder (7 vol%) and nano-scale TiO 2 (4 vol%) was developed for tribological evaluation. A series of composites containing additional fillers such as short carbon fibers (SCF), Aramid and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) particles was developed and...
The well-known essential work of fracture model, describing the linear relationship between fracture energy and un-cracked ligament length, is further extended to allow for any non-linearity in the relationship as this can potentially lead to a large error in determination of the essential work...
This paper presents a finite element analysis of a transverse fibre bundle test (TFT) using carbon fibres embedded in a vinylester urethane hybrid matrix. The evolution of thermal residual stresses, due to the cooling phase of the curing process of the model-composite and the subsequent...
The primary aim of this paper is to provide an insight on the effect of the location of organoclay on the micro- and nano-scale deformation processes in melt-compounded nylon 66/organoclay/SEBS-g-MA ternary nanocomposites prepared by different blending sequences. In addition, the deformation...
The present paper highlights the potential of the CNTs as nanofillers in polymers, but also stresses out the limitations and challenges one has to face dealing with nanoparticles in general. The relation between particle size, separation and volume content is described analytically. The...
