Experimental investigations on the ballistic impact performances of cold rolled sheet metals
This study focuses on the ballistic performances of 1 and 2 mm-thick and 2 × 1 mm-thick cold rolled sheet metal plates against 9 mm standard NATO projectile. The velocity of the projectile before and after perforation, the ...
Climate change mitigation with renewable energy: Geothermal
On a global scale, there is increasing evidence that climate is changing and of a discernible human influence. Many of scientists are confident that if current emissions of greenhouse gases continue, the world will be ...
The optimisation of the energy absorption of partially Al foam-filled commercial 1050H14 and 6061T4 Al crash boxes
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-02)
Partially Alulight and Hydro Al closed-cell foam-filled commercial 1050H14 Al and 6061T4 Al crash boxes were optimised using the response surface methodology in order to maximise specific energy absorption (SEA). The ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of high strain rate mechanical behavior of a [0/45/90/ - 45] quadriaxial E-Glass/Polyester composite
Quasi-static (10−3–10−1 s−1) and high strain rate (∼900 s−1) compression behavior of an E-Glass fiber woven fabric reinforced Polyester matrix composites was investigated by using a Shimadzu AG-I testing machine and a Split ...
Modeling water stress effect on soil salinity
As it is widely known the earth is experiencing a climate change. The primary effect of this change is the increase trend in global temperature. This, in turn, results in increased number of events in flooding, and drought ...
