Mechanical interlocking between porous electrospun polystyrene fibers and an epoxy matrix
(American Chemical Society, 2014)
An epoxy matrix filled with nonwoven mats of porous polystyrene (PS) fibers processed by an electrospinning was compression tested at quasi-static (1 × 10–3 s–1) and high strain (315 s–1) rates. The electrospun PS fibers ...
The increased compression strength of an epoxy resin with the addition of heat-treated natural nano-structured diatom frustules
(SAGE Publications, 2017-05)
Natural diatom frustules composing nanometer size silica particles were heat-treated at temperatures between 600 and 1200℃ for 2 h and used as filler/reinforcing agent (15 wt%) in an epoxy resin. The opal structure of ...
Experimental and numerical studies on the quasi-static and dynamic crushing responses of multi-layer trapezoidal aluminum corrugated sandwiches
The axial crushing responses of bonded and brazed multi-layer 1050 H14 trapezoid alaluminum corru- gated core (fin) sandwich structures, with and without aluminum interlayer sheets in 0°/0° and 0°/90° core orientations, ...
