Directed Assembly of Particles for Additive Manufacturing of Particle-Polymer Composites

This review article provides an overview of externally directed field mechanisms that are used for particle alignment and shows how these mechanisms are used to create structured composites with unique properties that can only be achieved through alignment.

Intrinsic Self-Healing Epoxies in Polymer Matrix Composites (PMCs) for Aerospace Applications

This article reviews some of the intrinsic self-healing epoxy materials that have been investigated throughout the course of the last twenty years. Emphasis is placed on those formulations suitable

A Review: Mechanical and Interfacial Properties of Composites after Diverse Types of Aging Using Micromechanical Evaluation

Composites has been an area of active research for the past several decades due to their lightweight and good mechanical properties. However, the aging of fiber reinforced composites is a major issue

Synthesis and Characterization of Carbon Nanotube-Doped Thermoplastic Nanocomposites for the Additive Manufacturing of Self-Sensing Piezoresistive Materials.

We present carbon nanotube (CNT)-reinforced polypropylene random copolymer (PPR) nanocomposites for the additive manufacturing of self-sensing piezoresistive materials via fused filament fabrication.



Self-healing polymers and composites based on thermal activation

Structural polymer composites are susceptible to premature failure in the form of microcracks in the matrix. Although benign initially when they form, these matrix cracks tend to coalesce and lead in

Computational Analysis of the Structural Integrity of Self-Healing Composites

This paper presents a computational and experimental investigation of the influence of self-healing micro-vessels on the structural properties of laminated composites. Embedded self-healing system is

Resistance Heating for Self-healing Composites

Thermally remendable polymers have recently become available that are paving the way for the creation of self-healing composites. This article investigates the use of carbon fibers as a resistive
