Three-dimensional (3D) printing and geo-polymers are two environmentally oriented innovations in concrete manufacturing. The 3D printing of concrete components aims to reduce raw material consumption and waste generation. Geo-polymer is being developed to replace ordinary Portland cement and reduce the carbon footprint of the binder in the...

The influence of fibre bridging on delamination failure in multidirectional composite laminates with different thickness scales is characterized, and the dependence of fibre bridging significance on laminate thickness as well as loading regime is investigated in this paper. Both quasi-static and fatigue resistance curves (R-curve) are...

The introduction, originally in 2009, by the FAA of a ‘slow growth’ approach to the certification of polymer-matrix fibre composites has focused attention on the experimental data and the analytical tools needed to assess the growth of delaminations under cyclic-fatigue loads. Of direct relevance is the fact that fatigue tests on aircraft...

This paper provides an investigation on thickness effects on fibre-bridged fatigue delamination growth (FDG) in composite laminates. A modified Paris relation was employed to interpret experimental fatigue data. The results clearly demonstrated that both thickness and fibre bridging had negligible effects on FDG behaviors. Both energy...

We review the development and application of an organic polymer-gel capable of producing fixed, three-dimensional fluorescent images of complex radiation fields. The gel consists for more than 99% of γ-ray-polymerized (~15% conversion) tertiary-butyl acrylate (TBA) containing ~100 ppm of a fluorogenic compound, e.g., maleimido-pyrene (MPy). The...

In some internally-draining dryland basins, ephemeral river systems terminate at the margins of playas. Extreme floods can exert significant geomorphological impacts on the lower reaches of these river systems and the playas, including causing changes to flood extent, channel-floodplain morphology, and sediment dispersal. However, the...

In the present study a new multi-fractional, depth-averaged sediment transport module was developed and embedded into a morphodynamic model for a sand-silt mixed shallow water environment. Subsequently, the model was applied to the case of the Jiangsu coast, which features a silt enriched sedimentary environment bordered by two large-scale...

We have filled a 24 mm diameter glass sphere with a transparent polymer-gel that is radio-fluorogenic, i.e., it becomes (permanently) fluorescent when irradiated, with an intensity proportional to the local dose deposited. The gel consists of > 99.9% tertiary-butyl acrylate (TBA), pre-polymerized to ~15% conversion, and ~100 ppm maleimido...

Fatigue delamination in multidirectional composite laminates was experimentally investigated in present study. Both the Paris relation and a modified Paris relation (with a new similitude parameter) were employed to interpret fatigue delamination with significant fibre bridging. The results clearly demonstrated that fatigue delamination was...

In this work a 40 mm cube of an optically clear, radio-fluorogenic gel composed of partially-polymerized tertiary-butyl acrylate and maleimido-pyrene (~0.01%) is irradiated with orthogonally-crossed, 10 mm square and round, 200 kVp x-ray beams. A thin sheet of UV light is produced between two parallel plates with 2 mm slits illuminated by...

The recent growth and deepening of inland lakes in the Tibetan Plateau (TP) may be a salient indicator of the consequences of climate change. The seasonal dynamics of these lakes is poorly understood despite this being potentially crucial for disentangling contributions from glacier melt and precipitation, which are all sensitive to climate,...

This paper aims to investigate stress ratio effect on fibre bridging significance in mode I fatigue delamination growth of composite materials. Fatigue resistance curves (R-curves) of different stress ratios are determined and compared with the quasi-static R-curve. The fatigue R-curve of a high stress ratio is similar to the quasi-static...

The Abandoned Yellow River Delta (AYD), which formed when the Yellow River flowed into the Southern Yellow Sea between 1128 and 1855 AD, is a representative example of the sensitivity of deltas to modifications in their environments. In this study, we established a process-based morphodynamic model to explore the morphological evolution of one...

Fibre bridging can significantly enhance delamination resistance making the use of a single Paris resistance curve to determine fatigue crack growth insufficient. An empirical Paris-type relation has been developed in a previous study to take fibre bridging into account in fatigue delamination growth. This relation was developed by correlating...

The reliability analysis approach based on combined probability and evidence theory is studied in this paper to address the reliability analysis problem involving both aleatory uncertainties and epistemic uncertainties with flexible intervals (the interval bounds are either fixed or variable as functions of other independent variables).

The effective roughness height is an important parameter in coastal sediment transport models. It has been extensively investigated in the past but few research results are related to the high-concentrated flows which often occur in a silty coast. A series of experiments has been carried out in a wave-current flume with silt-sized sediment...

Proteins are vital in all biological systems as they constitute the main structural and functional components of cells. Recent advances in mass spectrometry have brought the promise of complete proteomics by helping draft the human proteome. Yet, this commonly used protein sequencing technique has fundamental limitations in sensitivity. Here we...

The radiation-induced polymerization and fluorescence intensity of a radio-fluorogenic medium consisting of tertiary-butyl acrylate (TBA) with ca 100 ppm maleimido-pyrene (MPy) display a super-linear dependence on dose and a close to inverse square root dependence on dose rate over the range from 2 to 30 Gy/min. In contrast with the fluorescence...
