Self-Healing Nanotextured Vascular-like Materials: Mode i Crack Propagation
(American Chemical Society, 2017-08)
Here, we investigate crack propagation initiated from an initial notch in a self-healing material. The crack propagation in the core-shell nanofiber mats formed by coelectrospinning and the composites reinforced by them ...
Silver-decorated and palladium-coated copper-electroplated fibers derived from electrospun polymer nanofibers
(Elsevier B.V., 2017-11)
Here we introduce novel methods of forming silver (Ag) and palladium (Pd) fibers. The Ag and Pd fibers are fabricated by the combination of electrospinning, electroplating, and ion-exchange techniques. Their properties are ...
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 ...
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 ...
