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 ...
Thermally driven self-healing using copper nanofiber heater
(American Institute of Physics Inc., 2017-07-03)
Nano-textured transparent heaters made of copper nanofibers (CuNFs) are used to facilitate accelerated self-healing of bromobutyl rubber (BIIR). The heater and BIIR layer are separately deposited on each side of a transparent ...
Theoretical, numerical, and experimental investigation of pressure rise due to deflagration in confined spaces
Estimating pressure rise due to deflagration in a fully or partially confined space is of practical importance in safety design of a petrochemical plant. Herein, we have developed a new theoretical model to predict the ...
