Self-healing three-dimensional bulk materials based on core-shell nanofibers
In this study, electrospun core-shell nanofibers containing healing agents are embedded into a three-dimensional bulk matrix in a simple versatile process. Two types of the healing agents (resin monomer and cure) are ...
Detection of Vapor Released from Sublimating Materials Encased in Porous Medium
Detection of materials encased in porous media is important in many applications and can be attempted via sensing vapor sublimating from them. Development of such sensors requires evaluation of vapor concentration expected ...
Pool Boiling of Novec 7300 and DI water on Nano-textured Heater Covered with Supersonically Blown or Electrospun Polymer Nanofibers
In this work we study pool boiling of Novec 7300 and DI water on bare copper surface and copper surface covered with supersonically-blown or electrospun polymer nanofibers. In distinction from the previous works nanofibers ...
Wetting of Inclined Nano-textured Surfaces by Self-healing Agents
(AIP Publishing, 2017-11)
Experiments were conducted to study spreading of droplets of liquid healing agents on tilted nanofiber mats, which is relevant in the framework of self-healing engineered materials with vascular networks. In the present ...
Faradaic Reactions’ Mechanisms and Parameters in Charging of Oils
Leaky dielectric liquids, e.g. oils, constitute a class of conductors capable of being electrified to possess a net charge. Faradaic reactions have been recently demonstrated to be responsible for the electrification of ...
