Two continuum-mechanics-based mechanistic models are proposed to characterize the pull-out behavior of a long multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) from its surrounding matrix based on available experimental observations. One model is based on the mechanism of debonding and its propagation along...
The date pits flour was used as a filling material in composition with high density polyethylene (HDPE). The blending proportions were: (1) 10% date pits, 90% HDPE; (2) 20% date pits, 80% HDPE; (3) 30% date pits, 70% HDPE; and (4) 40% date pits, 60% HDPE. Thermal conductivities, specific heat,...
Rigid, fused-ring molecules were investigated as nano-sized reinforcements for engineering polymers. Because of the high specific surface area associated with their small size, it was expected that they would provide greater enhancement of modulus than equally stiff reinforcements of millimeter...
The aim of this in vitro study was to evaluate the influence of food simulating solutions on surface hardness of three different composite resins. A total of 50 specimens were fabricated for each of Filtek Z 250, Clearfil ST, Aelite LS Packable according to the manufacturers' instructions. Ten...
Thermally conductive resins are needed for fuel cell bipolar plates. Varying amounts of three different carbons (carbon black, synthetic graphite particles, and carbon fiber) were added to Vectra A950RX Liquid Crystal Polymer. The resulting single filler composites were tested for thermal...
The interaction between a hollow cylindrical nanofiber and a crack in an infinite medium is investigated. The two-dimensional problem, when the crack lies in the cross-sectional plane of the fiber, is solved for a transversely isotropic fiber in an isotropic matrix phase. The reported work to...
This work focuses on the numerical simulation of damage and fracture of unidirectional fiber-reinforced composite structures using the finite element method. A computational model is presented which can predict initial failure and is capable of the simulation of the subsequent process of local...
