The nature of singularities at the vertex of conical notches and inclusions is found for problems of potential theory and for elastostatic problems of torsion and of axisymmetric stress. A solution in terms of spherical harmonics and a general numerical solution based upon the field equations are used to determine the power dependence of the field(More)
The objective of this study is to investigate the effect of surface treatment on the morphology and thermo-mechanical properties of bamboo fibers. The fibers are subjected to an alkali treatment using 4 wt % sodium hydroxide (NaOH) for 1 h. Mechanical measurements show that the present concentration has an insignificant effect on the fiber tensile strength.(More)
