Eco-friendly Lignin Nanofiber Mat for Protection of Wood against Attacks by Environmentally Hazardous Fungi
There are multiple wood-attack fungi that deteriorate wood globally. Control of wood-attack fungi is costly and requires moisture sensors, application of different chemicals, and correct identification of the fungi. ...
Development and implementation of geometrically accurate reduced-order models: Convergence properties of planar beams
A geometrically accurate infinitesimal-rotation planar beam element is developed and implemented in this study. The performance of the element, which is suited for developing reduced-order models for both structural and ...
Experimental and numerical investigation of smoke dynamics in vertical cylinders and open-air environment
Smoke rise in elevator shafts and stairwells is a primary risk from fires. Information on temperature and smoke velocity is necessary for safety evaluation and evacuation guidelines when designing high-rise buildings. ...
Deflagration-to-Detonation Transition in Pipes: The Analytical Theory
Herein, we discuss the fundamental aspects of the deflagration-to-detonation transition (DDT) phenomenon in the framework of analytical theory. This semi-empirical approach facilitates prediction of the pressure rise and ...
Hydroentanglement of Polymer Nonwovens 2: Simulation of Multiple Polymer Fibers and Prediction of Entanglement
The dynamic model of polymer fibers in hydroentanglement process developed in Part 1 (G. Li, C. Staszel, A.L. Yarin, B. Pourdeyhimi. Hydroentanglement of Polymer Nonwovens. 1: Experimental and Theoretical/Numerical Framework) ...
