Fracture properties of fibre and nano reinforced composite structures
Interlaminar cracking or delamination is an inherent disadvantage of composite materials. In this study the fracture properties of nano and fibre-reinforced polypropylene and epoxy composite structures are examined. These ...
Diesel engine performance modelling using neural networks
The aim of this study is to develop, using neural networks, a model to aid the performance monitoring of operational diesel engines in industrial settings. Feed-forward and modular neural network-based models are created ...
Controller performance assessment of servomechanisms for nonlinear process control systems
Abstract—This paper aims at assessing the setpoint tracking performance of proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers for nonlinear single-input-single-output (SISO) process loops. A comparison is made between the ...
Splitting vacancy voids in the grain boundary region by a post-cascade shock wave
(Institute of Problems of Mechanical Engineering, 2013)
The structural transformation of vacancy voids in the grain boundary region of the bicrystal under the influence of post-cascade shock waves is studied with the aid of molecular dynamics simulations. It is shown that the ...
Correlation between elastic and electric properties for cyclically loaded metals
A new method of evaluation of the elastic property deterioration due to accumulated damage is suggested and experimentally verified. It is based on the explicit correlations between two groups of anisotropic properties – ...
Hybrid motion detection system using DSP and ANN ensembles
Hybrid systems are used in engineering systems and scientific applications to enhance and to improve their efficiency. This paper presents a hybrid system using digital signal processing (DSP) systems and artificial neural ...
Effect of nanoclay in HDPE–glass fiber composites on processing, structure, and properties
(Taylor and Francis, 2012-10-23)
Natural Na+ montmorillonite (MMT) microclay and organo-treated MMT nanoclay were independently filled in a high-density polyethylene (HDPE) polymer and HDPE–glass fiber (GF) composite and the rheological and mechanical ...
The synthesis, structure and properties of polypropylene nanocomposites
Polymer nanocomposites may be defined as structures that are formed by infusing layered-silicate clay into a thermosetting orthermoplastic polymer matrix. The nanocomposites are normally particle-filled polymers for ...
