Modelling of Strength and Stiffness Behaviour of Natural Fibre Reinforced Polypropylene Composites
The mechanical behaviour (strength and stiffness) of natural fibre reinforced thermoplastics is investigated on the example of an injection moulded sisal-polypropylene system. An analytical model
Topology optimization of a plate coupled with acoustic cavity
Optimization of the topology of a plate coupled with an acoustic cavity is presented in an attempt to minimize the fluid-structure interactions at different structural frequencies. A mathematical
Characterization of the draping behavior of jute woven fabrics for applications of natural-fiber/epoxy composites
In this study, we investigated the draping behavior of jute woven fabric to study the feasibility of using natural fabrics in place of synthetic glass-fiber fabrics. Draping behavior describes the
Effect of static, dynamic, thermal, and humidity loading on fatigue life of fiber optic cables
Health monitoring of aircraft structures with optical fiber sensors requires that the fibers remain functional for the lifetime of these structures as repairs are generally very costly and time
Shear Strength of Brazed and Soldered Joints For the joint design tested , unit shear strength depends on geometric parameters and axial load direction BY
This paper presents the results of experimental work conducted on soldered and brazed joints, formed between two coaxial steel cylinders (bushing and pin), and loaded by an axial push or pull force
New Development in the Design and Production of Solar Collectors
. New designs and production methods are used to manufacture cost effective flat solar collectors, using local materials and simple fabrication techniques. This is applied to absorber plate,
Vibration control of beams using constrained layer damping with functionally graded viscoelastic cores: theory and experiments
Conventionally, the viscoelastic cores of Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) treatments are made of materials that have uniform shear modulus. Under such conditions, it is well-recognized that these
Prediction of the Modulus of Elasticity of Short Fibre Reinforced Polymer Composites by Finite Element Modelling
Recently, there has been increased interest in fibre-reinforced polymer composites, due to their distinctive specific strength, corrosion resistance and fatigue resistance, as well as high damping
