Functionalized carbon nanotubes improve nanocomposite wear properties
Joong Hee Lee, Jhon Kathi, Ji-Hoon Lee, Kyong Rhee, September 2010

Improved interfacial adhesion between carbon nanotubes and the polymer results in nanocomposites exhibiting improved wear rates compared to ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene alone.

Using waves to locate sources in laminated plates
Chao Du, September 2010

Understanding the characteristics of wave propagation in laminated plates can aid in advancing nondestructive monitoring of composite structures.

Better predicting the dynamic response of sandwich panels
S. Hossein Taghavian, Jafar Eskandari Jam , Behrouz Eftari, September 2010
