Technical Article Briefs
Alginate enhances formation of polyaniline-alginate/titanium dioxide nanocomposites
Do Sung Huh, Chitragara Basavaraja, Eun Ae Jo, March 2010

Cavitation in high-density polyethylene
Abdesselam Dahoun, David Ruch, Jean Di Martino, Frederic Addiego, Olivier Godard, March 2010
The density of cavities developing in both unfilled and filled polymers decreases from core to skin and is substantially affected by macroscopic stresses.
Ball formation on flow fronts during micro-injection molding
Yeong-Eun Yoo, Kwan-Hee Lee, Sung-Ju Choi, Dae-Jin Kim, Sun Kyoung Kim, March 2010
Under high pressures and at high temperatures, mold flow advances smoothly and continuously, leading to creation and merging of micro-balls that look like teeth on gum.
Metal-oxide-containing polysiloxane enables enhanced conductivity
Jooheon Kim, Hyungu Im, March 2010
Newly synthesized metal/polymer composites exhibit improved electrical and thermal properties.
Multi-objective optimization of injection molding

Automatically defining the values of important process operating conditions results in optimum performance.
Improving the toughness of mica composites
Ming-Rui Meng, Qiang Dou, Lin Li, February 2010
Treating isotactic polypropylene/phlogopite mica with pimelic acid improves the orientation and dispersion of mica plates in the matrix.
Improvements in local mechanical property measurements of polymers
Gunter Moeller, February 2010
Using well-defined indenters and advanced data-analysis methods atomic-force microscopy can achieve accuracies to within 30-40% of those routinely obtained with macroscopic techniques.
Novel damping composite at room temperature
Chifei Wu, Fei Shen, Haiyan Xu, Guohua Hu, Yuanyi Cao, February 2010
The damping performance of hydrogenated nitrile-butadiene rubber greatly improves by incorporating hindered phenol.
All-polymeric photonic bandgap polystyrene/polymethyl methacrylate Bragg fibers
Maksim Skorobogatiy, Karen Stoeffler, Abdellah Ajji, Charles Dubois, February 2010
A novel and efficient method of making waveguides based on alternating polymer layers promises better control of the fabrication process and fewer defects.
Microstructural characteristics of ternary polymer composites
Ayhan Ezdesir, Halil Demirer, Onur Balkan, February 2010
The possible formation pathways of separate and core-shell microstructures of dispersed rigid filler and elastomer particles depend on the elastomer's polarity.
Carbon-epoxy cross-ply cruciform specimens under biaxial loading conditions
Ebrahim Lamkanfi, Wim Van Paepegem, Carla Ramault, Danny Van Hemelrijck, Dimitrios Zarouchas, Andreas Makris, February 2010
3D finite-element damage-model predictions of strain data closely match experimental digital-image-correlation measurements.
Characterizing the cure shrinkage of an epoxy resin in situ
Lolei Khoun, Pascal Hubert, February 2010
A pair of modified rheology and gravimetry techniques successfully measure and describe the evolution of the volumetric effects of an epoxy system during processing.
Adhesion and delamination mechanisms in alternating layered copolymers
