Copper/bamboo fabric (Cu/BF) composites were prepared by electroless deposition via a tin-free process. The process involved 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane modification, noble metal (Au or Pd) activation and electroless copper planting of BF. The copper deposition rate via Pd catalytic process was...
The paper presents a shell element based unit cell approach for numerical homogenization of fiber reinforced textile composites. The modeling strategy is set up within the framework of the Finite Element Method with special emphasis on numerical efficiency, which becomes particularly important in...
Polypropylene (PP) composites reinforced with recycled carbon fibre have been prepared through extrusion compounding and injection moulding. The reinforcing potential of the recycled fibre was increased by improving the interfacial adhesion between the fibre and PP matrix and this was done by the...
