The development of high performance fibers, based on polyethylene (PE) fiber opened the possibility of manufacturing composites with high strength and lightness and gave a modern application to an old fashioned material. In the present study, the interfacial micromechanics between gel-spun PE...
In this study, a new design method for antenna-integrated composite sandwich structures is proposed. First, the effects of sandwich geometry on antennas are investigated in the transmission line analogy. Changes in the gain of an antenna due to a sandwich geometry have been determined. For a...
As one of the fundamental prerequisites for composite material applications of single-walled carbon nanotubes, their mechanical properties as reinforcing fillers should be identified in the conventional manner of mechanics of composite materials. In particular, identification of elastic...
Finite element (FE) analyses are carried out on bolt bearing testing scenarios based on data found in the literature. Both layer-by-layer and smeared property FE models are created to calculate the compressive characteristic dimension (CCD) for three GLARE variants. A novel re-definition of...
In this study, the effects of thermal cycling combined with mechanical loading on the microcracking of M40J/PMR-II-50 are investigated. Characterization of the failure mechanisms are conducted based on the critical parameters which cause composite microcracking, as presented in Part I. Based on...
Commingled fibers, a blend of reinforcement and matrix filaments within the tow, provide a good material arrangement to overcome the high viscosity at melt of thermoplastic matrices. This study first characterizes the architecture of a carbon/nylon commingled yarn by microscopy. Then, braiding...
In this study, rectorite (REC), being a type of layered silicates, has been applied to the polymer to improve its properties. The glass fiber-reinforced polymer-layered silicate clay composites are a new option to modify the properties of the polymer. In the present study, unsaturated polyester...
