Mechanistic Approach to Structural Fire Modeling of Composites

A thermo-mechanical property model for composites subjected to fire loading conditions was developed for the purpose of reducing testing time for prediction of the performance of new materials. The thermal diffusivity and conductivity were used to describe the thermal property evolution. A micro-mechanics based model was developed based on visco-elastic foundations for the prediction of rupture behaviour when the samples are compressed, and iso-thermal behaviour. The model was successful in ...

Studying the effect of addition a composite of silanized Nano-Al2O3 and plasma treated polypropylene fibers on some physical and mechanical properties of heat cured PMMA denture base material

The authors have presented a method for the addition of alumina nanoparticles and polypropylene fibers to a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) matrix. This composite material shows promise for use as denture base material. The composite material was subsequently subjected to a number of tests to investigate its structural and thermal properties. It was found that the composites showed an improvement in impact strength, and one of the two composites tested ...
