  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Characterization of Heat Treated LMwD Ti-6Al-4V to Study the Effect of Cooling Rate on Microstructure and Mechanical Properties

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

    Author : Emil Edin; [2019]
    Keywords : Ti-6Al-4V; LMwD; Characterization; Alpha Laths;

    Abstract : In this work, the influence of different cooling rates (5, 20, 50 and 100 °C/s) on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Laser Metal Wire Deposited (LMwD) Ti-6Al-4V was investigated, this was done using a thermal-mechanical physical simulation system (Gleeble 3800, DSI). Two different soak times above β transus (held at 1100 °C), 5 and 40 s, were used and after cooling to 150 °C, the samples were tensile tested. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigating In-plane Shear Behaviour of Uncured Unidirectional Prepreg Tapes

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Ming Kai Chea; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Steering of prepreg tows in an automated fibre placement (AFP) process allows geodesic layup trajectory over a doubly-curved surface, as well as the potential to improve the efficiency of composite structures by tailoring their stiffness. However, defects (such as out-of-plane buckling and tow pull off) are commonly generated when the steering radius exceeds a critical limit, which impact the mechanical properties of the finished product.

  4. 4. Mechanical properties of SiC nanowires with polytypes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Anders Vesti; [2019]
    Keywords : atomistic modeling; nanowires; molecular dynamics; simulation; SiC; silicon carbide; fracture behavior; nanomechanics; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this report, we model the mechanical properties and fracture behavior of SiC nanowires with different polytypes using Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. The mechanical properties investigated are the Young’s modulus, the maximum tensile stress and the fracture strain. The three polytype tested are SiC (3C), (2H) and (4H). READ MORE

  5. 5. Abaca in the Philippines, an overview of a potential important resource for the country : Relating the tensile strength of the single fiber to the microfibrilar angle

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH); KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Victor Waller; Astrid Wilsby; [2019]
    Keywords : Abaca; fiber; renewable materials; Manila hemp; Industrial crops; Tensile strength;

    Abstract : Due to environmental concerns and to the limited amount of fossil fuel in the world theinterest in using renewable material has been and will continue to be on the rise. With theincreasing demand for renewable materials such as bio-based fibers, the research aroundnatural fibers is intensifying. READ MORE
