Due to the small size of nano-inclusions, their surface becomes an important factor determining the composite properties. For “microcomposites” (with inclusions larger than one micron) it is often sufficient to consider the phases’ bulk properties, [...]
Fracture critical parts of aerospace structures must have adequate life to withstand the cyclic load environment throughout their service usage. The life analysis of these parts requires having fracture mechanics allowables that are obtainable through [...]
Experimental characterization of mechanical behavior of nanostructures can be cumbersome and expensive. Design of nano-structured materials with properties tailored to meet macro-scale requirements invariably requires model-based understanding of the structure-to -property relationships. In this effort, [...]
In this paper the impact of entangled and non-straight fibers in the determination of the effective elastic and thermal properties of polymer nanocomposite (PNC) is addressed. Most of the models in recent studies assume nanotubes [...]

Solders are used in various levels of electronic assembly sequence, whereby good electrical, thermal and mechanical performances of solder are necessary. With miniaturization of devices, diverse functional requirements and ever-stricter operating environments of devices, the [...]
The rheology, microstructure and mechanical properties of polylactide (PLA)/clay nanocomposites were investigated. The nanocomposites were prepared using a twin screw extruder with and without the aid of supercritical carbon dioxide. Results show that there exists [...]
In previous works the authors presented the possibility to raise the permittivity of polyester-reactive-resin composite materials by using thermal treatment steps to optimize the crystal structure of a nano-powder before incorporating it into the composite. [...]
