  1. 1. Tribological Performance of Polymer Based Self-lubricating Coatings

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Maskinelement

    Author : Amit Roy; [2019]
    Keywords : polyimide coatings; carbon nanotube; graphene; tribological properties; elevated temperature.;

    Abstract : The thesis comprises the two parts in each chapter: the first part focuses on the development and characterization of polyimide (PI) based composite coatings on a steel substrate. In order to improve the tribological performance of polyimide coatings, the fillers i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fire Safety of Facades

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Bogdan-Grigore Branisteanu-Albulescu; [2019]
    Keywords : polystyrene; graphene; façade; pyrolysis; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Façade fires are a big concern due to past incidents and the large number of victims encountered. Vertical flame spread mechanism specific to this type of fires is a complex phenomenon with parameters that are often difficult to be coupled. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multifunctional Wood Polymer Composites Reinforced with Graphene Nanoplatelets : Investigating if multifunctionality can be achieved in wood polymer composites through the addition of graphene nanoplatelets

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Vanessa Meulenberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Wood polymer composites; graphene; multifunctional; wood flour;

    Abstract : Graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) were used to reinforce wood polymer composites (WPCs) in order to achieve multifunctionality. Multifunctionality could be achieved through the GNPs because of their excellent mechanical and electrical properties. The research consists of two parts: HDPE/GNP/WF composites and LLDPE/GNP composites. READ MORE

  4. 4. Influence of Nucleation Techniques on the Degree of Supercooling and Duration of Crystallization for Sugar Alcohol as Phase Change Material : Investigation on erythritol-based additiveenhanced Composites

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik; KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : JiaCheng Lin; HaoRan Teng; [2019]
    Keywords : Phase Change Material; Latent Thermal Energy Storage; Temperature-history; Sugar Alcohols; Supercooling; Duration of crystallization; Crystallization; Solidification; Fasändringsmaterial; Latent Termisk Energilagring; T-history; Sockeralkoholer; Underkylning; Varaktighet av kristallisering; Kristallisering; Stelning;

    Abstract : Utilizing Phase Change Materials (PCM) for Latent Thermal Energy Storage (LTES) applications have previously been extensively researched as a measure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from energy consumption. In order to make use of the waste heat from industrial processes for LTES purposes, a new demand emerged for PCMs capable of phase change in mid-temperature ranges of 100 °C - 200 °C. READ MORE

  5. 5. Printed transparent conducting electrodes based on carbon nanotubes (CNTs), reduced graphene oxide (rGO), and a polymer matrix.

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Md Mazharul Islam; [2019]
    Keywords : CNTs; GO; rGO; PVP;

    Abstract : The main focus of this project was to prepare transparent and conductive electrodes (TCEs). TCEs were made out of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs), reduced graphene oxide (rGO), and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP). READ MORE
