A new cohesive model for simulating delamination propagation in composite laminates under transverse loads. Running title: A new cohesive model for simulating delamination propagation in composite laminates 2 Abstract In this paper, we propose a new cohesive model to stably and accurately simulate the delamination propagations in composite laminates under(More)
Novel electrodes are needed for direct ethanol fuel cells with improved quality. Hierarchical engineering can produce catalysts composed of mesocrystals with many exposed active planes and multi-diffused voids. Here we report a simple, one-pot, hydrothermal method for fabricating Co3O4/carbon/substrate electrodes that provides control over the catalyst(More)
The aims of this research are to investigate the effect of the vehicle dynamics control systems on vehicle collision mitigation and to use them to improve vehicle collision performance in full and offset crash scenarios. For this approach, vehicle dynamics are studied together with the vehicle crash structural dynamics. A proposed unique 3-D full-car(More)
Abstract: In this paper, new front-end structures (smart) are proposed to improve vehicle frontal impact. The work carried out in this paper includes developing and analysing mathematical models of vehicle-to-rigid barrier offset frontal impact using fixed and extendable smart front-end structures with piecewise linear characteristics. In these models,(More)
