  1. 1. Mechanical and Thermal Characterisation of Novel UHMWPE Composites for Total Joint Arthroplasty

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

    Author : Julian Somberg; [2019]
    Keywords : UHMWPE; Nanocomposites; DSC; Fracture Toughness; Wear;

    Abstract : Total joint arthroplasty surgeries are known to have a high success rate but the longevity of the implants still acts as a limiting factor. Ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene is the material of choice for the implant bearing surfaces due to its excellent clinical and tribological performance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Patterned Nanocomposite of Carbon Nanotube/Polymer

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Saeed Motaragheb Jafarpour; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are carbon based nanostructures with extraordinary electronical and mechanical properties. They are used in a wide range of applications, usually embedded in polymer as fillers to form polymer based nanocomposites, in order to affect the electronic behavior of the polymer matrix.

  3. 3. Reprocessing and Characterisation of High Density Polyethylene Reinforced with Carbon Nanotubes

    University essay from Högskolan i Borås/Akademin för textil, teknik och ekonomi

    Author : Sofie Svensson; [2017]
    Keywords : HDPE; mechanical recycling; carbon nanotubes; nanocomposites;

    Abstract : Nanokomposit innehållande högdensitetspolyeten och kolnanorör återvanns och analyseradesför att undersöka hur materialets egenskaper påverkas av återvinning. Kompositenproducerades med 3 viktprocent kolnanorör och återvanns tio gånger genom att extrudera ochmala ner materialet. Analyser gjordes efter varje cykel av extrudering. READ MORE

  4. 4. Liquid Composite Molding of Multiphase Composites Using Resin with Nanofibrillated Cellulose : Distribution of Particles and Effect on Composite Properties

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

    Author : Mikael Westin; [2016]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Two objectives have served as the basis for the present work. The first objective was to experimentally verify the output of a Monte Carlo-based model on particle deposition in porous structures (i.e. fiber preform) during the resin transfer molding (RTM) process. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigation of the dielectric breakdown strength of polymer nanocomposites

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad materialvetenskap

    Author : Mattias Karlsson; [2014]
    Keywords : breakdown; polyethylene;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is to investigate the possibility of enhancing the dielectric breakdown strength (DBS) of low density polyethylene (LDPE) with addition of voltage stabilizing additives. In the first part of the thesis, the influence of various process parameters on the alternating current DBS of pure LDPE and LDPE containing either 3 or 30 wt% magnesium oxide nanoparticles was investigated.
