Design and fatigue life comparison of steel and composite leaf spring
(SAE International, 2012)
It has been a significant challenge to reduce weights of the vehicles to satisfy the regulations that require development of environmentally-safe vehicles with low CO2 emissions. The conventional leaf springs, designed for ...
Compressive mechanical behaviour of E-glass/polyester composite laminates tailored with a thermoplastic preforming binder
Compressive mechanical behaviour and failure modes of E (electrical)-glass/polyester composite laminates tailored with a thermoplastic preforming polyester binder were investigated under ply-lay up and in-plane loading ...
Electric field effects on CNTs/vinyl ester suspensions and the resulting electrical and thermal composite properties
In this study, electrical conductivity of a vinyl ester based composite containing low content (0.05, 0.1 and 0.3wt.%) of double and multi-walled carbon nanotubes with and without amine functional groups (DWCNTs, MWCNTs, ...
Mechanical and thermal behavior of non-crimp glass fiber reinforced layered clay/epoxy nanocomposites
Mechanical and thermal properties of non-crimp glass fiber reinforced clay/epoxy nanocomposites were investigated. Clay/epoxy nanocomposite systems were prepared to use as the matrix material for composite laminates. X-ray ...
Mode I and mode II fracture toughness of E-glass non-crimp fabric/carbon nanotube (CNT) modified polymer based composites
In this study, mode I and mode II interlaminar fracture toughness, and interlaminar shear strength of E-glass non-crimp fabric/carbon nanotube modified polymer matrix composites were investigated. The matrix resin containing ...
