Interlayer matrix hybridization of carbon-fiber-reinforced composites
Lamination of layered-structure composites enables improvements in fracture toughness and inhibition of crack propagation.
Improved car crash protection
Incorporating nanoclay into polyurethane foam improves low-velocity impact resistance.
Selecting latex characteristics
Emulsion polymer properties can be regulated by a simultaneous inferential control strategy, even in the presence of some modeling errors.
Reinforced biocomposites with guaranteed degradability in soil
The addition of cotton fibers to a starch-based commercial material maintains its thermal stability and assures its biodegradation.
Development of long-basalt- fiber-reinforced thermoplastic matrix composites
Long-fiber-reinforced compounds are particularly advantageous with respect to their dynamic mechanical properties.
Gelatin/hydroxyapatite nanocomposite scaffolds for bone repair
A specific combination of solvent-layer casting, freeze drying, and lamination techniques enables fabrication of biostructures with almost ideal properties for bone-tissue engineering.
Organoclay influence on polyamide-nanocomposite failure
Significantly improved flexural fatigue strength resulting from randomly dispersed layered nanoscale silicates enables novel structural applications.
Degradation behavior of aliphatic biodegradable polyesters
Structural changes of polyesters during in vitro incubation provide insights into their degradation that could be important for development of biomedical applications.
Preparation of nanocellular foams
Polymer-blend foams characterized by nanoscale cell structures offer potential for significantly improved performance compared to conventional materials.
How liquids flow through stretched glass-knitted preforms
Knitted-preform extension in both principal directions affects coursewise flow and permeability ratio, but does not change walewise permeability except by modifying fiber-volume fraction.
Tuning nanocomposite membranes for separation of liquid mixtures
Annealing can be used to control the morphological, physicochemical properties and pervaporation performance of thin sheets of polyvinyl alcohol nanocomposites.
Gas-packing effects in external gas-assisted injection molding
Applying gas pressure on the back side of parts at the post-filling stage solves shrinkage at far lower pressure than conventional methods.
Predicting flow and temperature effects on polymer crystallization
Simulating crystalline microstructure development under various thermal and mechanical conditions provides an essential step towards determining the final properties of injected parts.
Highly improved mechanical and tribological properties in nanofiber composites
A facile melt-processing method enables uniform dispersion of carbon nanofibers in polyetherimide without any chemical or physical treatment.
Stronger high-density polyethylene
Differential-scanning-calorimetry measurements show that nanocomposites containing barium sulfate have a more perfect crystalline phase.
Removing heavy metals from water
A functional nanofiber membrane can remove copper and lead ions from aqueous solution better than conventional membrane and polymer beads.
More efficient manufacture of controlled-rheology polypropylene
Polymer formation of a certain molecular weight can be predicted with careful control of reaction conditions.
Artificial blood vessels
Plasma treatment improves the mechanical properties of biomedical silk powder/polyurethane blend film.
Nanotalc improves properties of polyamide-6 binary and ternary nanocomposites
Nanotalc is more easily exfoliated than nanoclay through melt blending and forms extended, networklike structures and improved tensile strength, modulus, and flow in polyamide-6.
Robustness of switchover methods for injection molding
The consistency of molded plastic products is highly dependent on the ability of injection-molding machines to reject uncontrolled variation.
