3. Impact toughness of closed cell aluminum foam

Sourav Das

Volume 3, Issue 7 , August 2018, Pages 443-446

  The impact toughness of closed-cell aluminum foam with various densities was investigated using Charpy impact. The impact load history revealed an elastic region followed by a rapid load drop region. The peak load and impact toughness of aluminum foam increase exponentially with density. The power exponents ...  Read More

Wenbo Wang; Fangfang Wang; Yuru Kang; Li Zong; Qin Wang; Aiqin Wang

Volume 3, Issue 7 , August 2018, Pages 447-453

  In this paper, we developed a simple mechanical/chemical process to efficiently disperse palygorskite (PAL) crystal bundles into individual nanorods. The “cavity effect” of high-pressure homogenization process generated many “Miniature bombs” in the interior gap of crystal bundles, ...  Read More

5. On characterizing microscopically the adhesion interphases with humidity aging time for the adhesion between brass-plated steel cords and rubber compounds by Auger Electron Spectroscopy and FE-SEM

Gyung Soo Jeon

Volume 3, Issue 7 , August 2018, Pages 454-457

  The effect of humidity aging time of adhesion samples made up of brass-plated steel cord and rubber compound on the adhesion interphase was studied by the depth profiling of Auger electron spectroscopy and FE-SEM.  It was shown that humidity aging time of adhesion samples played major role of formation, ...  Read More
