AbstractIt is common to perform small-scale prototyping before large-scale application of three-dimensional (3D) printing technology and in this case size effects can have an important effect. Ther...

Abstract Zinc (Zn) metal is regarded as a promising anode material for aqueous batteries owing to its high natural abundance, high theoretical capacity and low redox potential. However, aqueous Zn metal anodes suffer from poor reversibility, as shown by their low Coulombic efficiency (CE) and dendrite growth during long-term plating/stripping. In this study, we report that a thin metallic Cu or Ag interfacial layer, made by a facile thermal evaporation method, can enable highly reversible and no...

Abstract Durability is important for construction materials especially when they are used for long-term engineering applications. Engineered cementitious composite (ECC) as a relatively new fiber-reinforced cementitious composite material has attracted broad interest from research and construction communities. ECC has strain-hardening behavior and self-healing ability due to its micro-cracking under tensile loading. These advantages make ECC more durable under various environmental conditions co...

Metallic sodium (Na) has been regarded as a promising anode for high-energy rechargeable batteries owing to its high theoretical specific capacity, low redox potential, and abundant resources. However, Na anode suffers from serious irreversibility problems, as reflected by its low coulombic efficiency (CE) and the formation of dendrites during plating/stripping. Here we report that an interfacial layer based on C@Ag nanoparticles with a well-designed yolk–shell structure is a very effective rout...

With the incorporation of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), the CNT/Polypropylene (PP) composites are found to possess enhanced mechanical properties, but the reinforcing effect of CNT weakens at high-percentage addition due to the CNT aggregation. To optimize the properties of nanocomposite, it requires a fundamental understanding of the effect of CNT dispersion on the nanocomposite. In this work, the coarse-grained molecular models of CNT/PP nanocomposites are constructed, which consist of randomly dis...

Abstract Compared with mechanical fastening, adhesive bonding offers numerous advantages in the joining of pultruded glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) sections. However, one critical issue associated with bonded joints is the assessment of their mechanical behavior considering bondline defects. This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation of the damage tolerance of adhesively bonded pultruded GFRP joints considering bondline defects. Double-strap specimens with and withou...

Abstract Steel plate bolted connections are frequently used in timber structures. However, these connections may incur durability problem due to the corrosion of the steel plates. This paper proposes using GFRP plate to replace steel plate in timber connections to mitigate the corrosion issue. The group effect of the proposed GFRP-timber bolted connection is studied. Tensile tests of GFRP-timber bolted connections were conducted considering a number of variables including bolt diameter, bolt pit...

Due to the high load-bearing capacity and light weight, composite leaf spring with variable width and variable thickness has been increasingly used in the automobile industry to replace the conventional steel leaf spring with a heavy weight. The optimum structural design of composite leaf spring is particularly favorable for the weight reduction. In this study, an effective algorithm is developed for structural optimization of composite leaf spring. The mechanical performance of composite leaf s...

Abstract Steel structures strengthened with CFRP composite may have potential galvanic corrosion issue. It was recommended that a layer of glass fiber sheet (GFS) be embedded in the adhesive layer to protect the CFRP-steel bonded system against galvanic corrosion. But the inclusion of GFS in the adhesive may negatively affect the bond behaviour between steel and CFRP. This paper investigated the effects of GFS on the corrosion behaviour and bond characteristics between steel and CFRP. Three type...

Sodium metal is regarded as one of the most prospective next-generation anodes material owing to its high theoretical capacity, low redox potential, low cost, and natural abundance. Its most notable problem is the dendrite growth during Na plating/striping, which causes not only the safety concern but also the generation of inactive Na. Here, it is demonstrated that 2D carbon nanosheets embedded by bismuth nanoparticles (NPs) (denoted as Bi⊂CNs) serve as a robust nucleation buffer layer to endow...
