Crystallization and dielectric behavior of PLA and PHBV in PLA/PHBV blends and PLA/PHBV/TIO 2 nanocomposites
( BME-PT and GTE , 2019 , Article)
The morphology, crystallization behavior and mechanical properties of PLA, PHBV and their blends and nanocomposites with TiO 2 as filler were investigated. An uncommon morphological change was observed with increasing PLA ...
Effect of waste wax and chain structure on the mechanical and physical properties of polyethylene
( Elsevier B.V. , 2015 , Article)
The influence of adding waste wax, produced as a by-product of the low density polyethylene manufacturing process, on the thermal and mechanical properties of three types of polyethylene (PE), high-density polyethylene ...
Physico-Mechanical Properties of New Electrospun Polyvinylidene Fluoride Nanocomposites
(2015 , Master Thesis)
This study aimed to prepare and characterize poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) nanofibres with the following additives: graphene oxide (GO), cellulose, and silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs). Two types of solvents were used to ...
Enhanced performance of nano-sized SiC reinforced Al metal matrix nanocomposites synthesized through microwave sintering and hot extrusion techniques
( Elsevier B.V. , 2017 , Article)
In the present study, nano-sized SiC (0, 0.3, 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 vol%) reinforced aluminum (Al) metal matrix composites were fabricated by microwave sintering and hot extrusion techniques. The structural (XRD, SEM), mechanical ...
Using B4C nanoparticles to enhance thermal and mechanical response of aluminum
( MDPI AG , 2017 , Article)
In this work, Al-B4C nanocomposites were produced by microwave sintering and followed by hot extrusion processes. The influence of ceramic reinforcement (B4C) nanoparticles on the physical, microstructural, mechanical, and ...
Hierarchical honeycomb auxetic metamaterials
( Nature Publishing Group , 2015 , Article)
Most conventional materials expand in transverse directions when they are compressed uniaxially resulting in the familiar positive Poisson’s ratio. Here we develop a new class of two dimensional (2D) metamaterials with ...
Development and Characterization of New AZ41 and AZ51 Magnesium Alloys
( John Wiley & Sons, Inc. , 2011 , Book chapter)
Comparison of the effect of carbon, halloysite and titania nanotubes on the mechanical and thermal properties of LDPE based nanocomposite films
( Chemical Industry Press , 2018 , Article)
In this study, titania nanotubes (TNTs) were prepared by hydrothermal method with the aim to compare the properties of these one-dimensional tubular nanostructures' reinforced nanocomposites with the carbon and halloysite ...
High strength, ductility, and electrical conductivity of in-situ consolidated nanocrystalline Cu-1%Nb
( Elsevier Ltd , 2018 , Article)
Nanocrystalline metals�with grain sizes less than 100 nm� have strengths exceeding those of coarse-grained and even alloyed metals [1,2]. A bulk nanocrystalline Cu-1%Nb alloy was synthesized by an in-situ consolidation ...
Enhancing thermal and mechanical response of aluminum using nanolength scale TiC ceramic reinforcement
( Elsevier Ltd , 2018 , Article)
the present work, nano-sized titanium carbide (0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 vol%) reinforced aluminum (Al) metal matrix composites were synthesized by powder metallurgy incorporating microwave sintering and hot extrusion. Microstructural, ...
