Well known is that stray electrical current i.e. current with a spatial distribution in any conductive environment, can affect civil structures, e.g. initiate or enhance steel corrosion or affect microstructural and mechanical properties of the cement-based bulk matrix. While the former is related to polarization effects in conditions of current...

Gaps in pre-preg plies, in a case when adjacent plies do not align perfectly, may represent a significant issue in an automated fibre placement manufacturing process and can be detrimental to the properties of the final laminates. In order to tackle the consequences of gaps in the composite material, a comprehensive research has to be performed....

Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW) raises an environmental problem due both to the lack of prevention in their production process and little use of recycled material. In order to improve this situation, over the last years the new legislation on the CDW has entered into force, fostering the recovery of waste at its end-of-life and...

Ethylene-co-methacrylic acid (EMAA) based ionomers have thermo-mechanical properties strongly dependent on neutralization level of acid groups. Research revealed also how these materials are able to heal after ballistic impacts. In order to better understand the role of neutralization level on the Self-Healing (SH) behaviour, mechanical and...

At present, the rapid development of automation technologies allows robots remarkable precision and endurance, as well as the strength in accomplishing repetitive tasks. Despite this, manual control is still indispensable in many domains where robots and humans play complementary roles, as humans demonstrate superior competence in improvisation...

Elsner, A. (author)
Steel producers are forced to reduce the production cost on the one hand and increase the performances of the products on the other hand, to maintain or even increase their market share. A likely method to save on production costs is to cut down the rather long production chain for conventional cold rolled strip, and to substitute certain cold...

When a bone is fractured, it loses its structural integrity which makes it unable to bear any mechanical load. Therefore, a broken bone must be supported until it regains its strength to handle the body's movement and weight. A surgical procedure is needed to set a fractured bone. This procedure often involves repositioning the bone fragments...

Titanium alloys possess good corrosion properties, high temperature stability and high strength-to-weight ratio. However, they fall short in providing the optimum strength-ductility relation in the most demanding structural applications, including the aerospace sector. Inspired by the possibility of enhancing the strength-ductility relation in...

Environmental regulations are driving the development of new aerospace coating systems, mainly to eliminate chromates and reduce volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. Among the various potential options for new coating materials, liquid crystalline polymers (LCPs) are attractive due to their unique combination of mechanical properties and...

This thesis aims at the development of physical relations between the intricate 3D features of metallic microstructures and the mechanical properties of the material. For understanding which are the microstructural determinants of the resultingmechanical behaviour of metals, a deep quantitative characterisation of the microstructure is needed....

The main objective of the research presented in the thesis is to explore non-functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) as reinforcing nanofiller in all-aromatic thermoplastic poly(etherimide)s. The role of polymer geometry and how this affects the morphological and thermo-mechanical properties of the SWCNT-PEI nanocomposites were...

In this thesis we report the synthesis, characterization and thermo-mechanical properties of a high-temperature resistant themoset nanocomposite system based on an aero-space-grade Bismaleimide resin. Various processing techniques with various fillers are used. The emphasis is on establishing the relationship between the structure and mechanical...

Structural heterogeneity defines the properties of many functional polymers and it is often crucial for their performance and ability to withstand mechanical impact. Such heterogeneity, however, poses a tremendous challenge for characterization of these materials and limits our ability to design them rationally. Herein we present a practical...

Recent developments in additive manufacturing techniques have motivated an increasing number of researchers to study regular porous biomaterials that are based on repeating unit cells. The physical and mechanical properties of such porous biomaterials have therefore received increasing attention during recent years. One of the areas that have...

We fabricate freely suspended nanosheets of molybdenum disulphide (MoS2) which are characterized by quantitative optical microscopy and high-resolution friction force microscopy. We study the elastic deformation of freely suspended nanosheets of MoS2 using an atomic force microscope. The Young’s modulus and the initial pretension of the...

This paper presents a detailed experimental assessment of the effect of the thickness of flat energy directors (ED) on heat generation at the interface during ultrasonic welding. Power and displacement data showed clear differences caused by the change of thickness, related to heat concentration at the weld line during the process. The extent...
