The Effect Of High Strain Rate On The Piezo-Resistance Of Polydimethylsiloxane With Carbon Nanotubes
This paper describes the piezoresistive properties of a nanocomposite made of polydimethylsiloxane and multi- walled carbon nanotubes that is subjected to high strain rate. We highlight the production process of the ...
3D Numerical Study Of Hill Mounted VAWT
The ground topography effect on the wind flow is significant. The knowledge of the flow behavior near ground is crucial in the development of wind power, especially in the choice of suitable sites and for estimation of ...
Influence Of Porosity And Alloy Addition On The Wear Behaviour Of A Sinter-Forged C45 Steel Using Taguchi Method
Elemental powders of Atomized Iron (Fe), Carbon (C) and Molybdenum (Mo) were weighed and mixed in a pot mill to yield the composition of C45, C45-1%Mo and C45-2%Mo Steels, then compacted and sintered. The Sintered preforms ...
Modeling Viscoelastomers With Nonlinear Viscosity
Consisting of highly mobile and flexible polymer chains, elastomers are known to exhibit viscoelastic behavior. Adopting concepts from the theory of polymer dynamics and finite-deformation viscoelasticity, this work presents ...
Investigation Of Fraying In Textile Reinforcements For Composites
This paper discusses the fraying of textile reinforcements upon preforming. The paper also introduces a method for quantifying the fraying characteristics of fabrics. Six different fabrics including three carbon fabrics ...
Gradient Elasticity Modelling For The Analysis Of Fiber Composites With Fiber Resistant To Flexure
A model for the deformation of an elastic solid reinforced by embedded fibers is presented in which elastic resistance of the fibers to bending is incorporated. We developed the equilibrium equations and necessary boundary ...
