Morphology, mechanical, cross-linking, thermal, and tribological properties of nitrile and hydrogenated nitrile rubber/multi-walled carbon nanotubes composites prepared by melt compounding: The effect of acrylonitrile content and hydrogenation

Nanocomposites were prepared by the mixing of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) with nitrile and hydrogenated nitrile elastomers (NBR and HNBR). A variety of methods including TEM, SEM, and XRD were used in order to investigate the morphology of the nanocomposites. Many mechanical properties of the nanocomposites were measured and reported. A machine was used to measure the thermal properties of the synthesized nanocomposites....

Thermal and mechanical properties of fiber reinforced high performance self-consolidating concrete at elevated temperatures

The thermal and mechanical properties of 4 different types of concrete were studied in the temperature range of 20°C to 800°C. Thermal properties studied include: thermal conductivity, specific heat and thermal expansion. Data generated from the testing of these samples using the TPS method were used in order to generate simplified expressions of thermal and mechanical properties as a function of time....

Synergetic effects of graphene platelets and carbon nanotubes on the mechanical and thermal properties of epoxy composites

The authors observed a remarkable synergistic effect when they used multi-graphene platelets (MGPs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) together in an epoxy composite. The use of these two fillers together increased the tensile strength, thermal conductivity, solubility and compatibility relative to the various individual components. The 1D nanotubes inhibit the aggregation/stacking of the platelets and thus result in high contact area between MGP/MWCNT and the polymer matrix....

Three Dimensional Homogeneity Characterization in Composite Materials

The turn of the evolution in plastics came with the development of fiber reinforcements. With the introduction of reinforcement fibers to a base resin, the mechanical properties are improved drastically, allowing for the product to be implemented in a wide range of applications. These materials were discovered to have half the weight of their metal counterparts and a tensile strength that is more than doubled. Fibers within the system are ...
