Localization and Fracture Phenomena in Inelastic Solids by Piotr Perzyna

By Piotr Perzyna

The ebook includes the dialogue of a few very important points of localization and fracture phenomena in inelastic solids (single crystals, polycrystalline solids and geological materials). actual and experimental foundations of crystal plasticity are given. Constitutive modelling of dissipative solids for description of localization and fracture is gifted. numerous regularization equipment for answer of the initial-boundary price difficulties are defined. Numerical recommendations in keeping with finite aspect approach to practicular evolution issues of localization of plastic deformation are considered.

Flow Induced Alignment in Composite Materials by T. D. Papathanasiou, D. C. Guell

By T. D. Papathanasiou, D. C. Guell

From the PrefaceThe goal of this e-book is to offer inside a unmarried quantity, specified details in regards to the technology, processing, purposes, characterization and homes of composite fabrics bolstered with brief fibres which have been orientated in a popular path via flows bobbing up in the course of processing. This publication is meant to be important to . . . fabrics scientists and different experts within the box . . . and engineers, designers and manufacturers of composites bolstered with brief fibres. To our wisdom, this is often the 1st time info relating this crucial type of engineering fabrics has been systematically offered inside a unmarried quantity. the aim of aligning brief fibres in a fibre-reinforced fabric is to enhance the mechanical houses of the ensuing composite. Aligning the fibres, more often than not in a popular course, permits them to give a contribution up to attainable to reinforcing the fabric. In a few circumstances, the mechanical houses of those aligned, short-fibre composites can strategy these of continuous-fibre composites, with the extra benefit of low creation expenses and bigger ease of creation. The publication covers thought, processing, characterization and houses. extra particularly, the subjects thought of . . . contain fibre alignment and fabric rheology; procedures which could produce fibre alignment in polymeric, liquid crystal polymeric and steel composites; fabrics characterization and mechanical houses; and modelling of tactics and fabric houses.

Carbon Fibers and Their Composites (Materials Engineering) by Peter Morgan

By Peter Morgan

Such a lot literature touching on carbon fibers is of a theoretical nature. Carbon Fibers and their Composites deals a entire examine the categorical production of carbon fibers and graphite fibers into the becoming surge of various functions that come with flameproof fabrics, protecting coatings, biomedical and prosthetics functions, textiles, batteries and gasoline cells, automobile functions, development, or even musical tools. this beneficial advisor presents a hands-on method of the fabrication of carbon fibers. The publication starts off with a blueprint of the foreign heritage and improvement of carbon fiber, basically outlined terminology for all kinds of reliable carbon items, and the homes for elemental carbon and its allotropic varieties. It then elaborates upon precursor fabrics, correct floor therapy, and sizing for every carbon fiber variety to be had on the planet industry. a number of chapters additionally study the categories of matrices, their homes, and fracture mechanics of thermoset and thermoplastic polymers, carbon, glass, steel, and ceramics matrices. Carbon Fibers and their Composites finds straight forward instructions for the day by day operations of a carbon fiber plant, corresponding to protection trying out, quality controls, layout of apparatus, packaging, air flow/dust keep an eye on, upkeep, and environmental rules. in accordance with over 30 years of expertise within the box, the writer bargains perception and attainable suggestions to the issues linked to creation and checking out of carbon fibers and their similar composites. He information using analytical chemistry options, instrumentation specifications, and facts to judge the consequences. Carbon Fibers and their Composites deals an outstanding explanation of the way carbon fibers yield bolstered composites, their actual and chemical features, the varied production strategies for every style, and the benefits they provide to a number of functions.
