Abstract null null Morphing composite structures are of significant interest due to the fact that they exhibit superior mass-to-stiffness ratios and a large degree of tailorability in comparison to traditional materials and structures. One such morphing composite structure is the multistable composite cylindrical lattice. Current work introduces a novel variable-topology morphing mechanism to it through the use of both permanent magnets and electromagnets. By replacing a set of mechanical fasten...

Abstract null null Here, the effect of stacking sequence on the mechanical and thermomechanical properties of composites using natural fiber (jute), synthetic fiber (glass) and unsaturated polyester resin, is presented. The fabricated composite laminates were neat jute/polyester, neat glass/polyester, and hybrid jute/glass/polyester. It was revealed that neat glass/polyester laminate showed better mechanical performance than the other laminates, and glass fiber hybridization significantly affect...

Abstract null null Interlayer hybrid laminated structures have the potential to solve the high cost issue of large-scale application of composite structures. Compared with single coupled laminate, multi-coupled laminates can avoid the limitations of low mechanical properties. At first, the interlayer hybrid multi-coupled laminates were studied, and research showed that there were 12 types of interlayer hybrid laminates with extension-twisting coupling, of which 8 types could meet the conditions ...

Abstract null null null null null null null Multiscale modeling null strategy development of graphene and its composites is of critical importance in engineering and technological applications. In this work, we systematically developed a null null chirality null preserved coarse-grained graphene model and the corresponding potential, TersoffCG(16–1). The robustness of this potential is verified through structural and mechanical characterization analysis comparison between coarse-grained and all-...

Abstract null null As additive manufacturing (AM) continues to develop and become a standardized manufacturing method, there will be a continued need to provide in-situ monitoring during the manufacturing of polymer composite printed components. Thermal residual stress is a primary cause of failures such as interlayer disbonds or delamination, micro cracking, and dimensional instability, which can occur during or after the build. This study reports a novel digital image correlation (DIC) adaptat...

Abstract null null A composite bi-stable structure can deform and maintain its stable states without the need for constant energy inputs. In this paper we describe a class of composite bi-stable shells that makes use of ad-hoc stacking sequences and pre-bending to modify the curvature of the plate. These composite structures possess two types of bi-stability (same direction and opposite direction). The same-direction bi-stable structure is characterized by the presence of two stable states that ...

Abstract null null In building industries, branched load-bearing structures are used for defined load transfer and load distribution. While fiber-reinforced plastics are established as concrete formwork for straight segments, node geometries are less available. This is caused by the complex manufacturing process of spatially branched, three-dimensional textile preforms. There are only few productive textile processes for the manufacture that are attractive to industry, the most common is braidin...

Abstract null null Piezoresistive cementitious composite materials are promising for developing damage self-sensing structural components. This paper aims to develop a kind of giant piezoresistive Cementitious Carbon Fiber Composite (CCFC) for enabling a fatigue damage self-sensing bridge deck. In particular, 0.4 % and 0.8 %Vol. of short cut Carbon Fibers (CFs) in cementitious composite were respectively adopted. The fiber diameter and length were 7 μm and 3 mm. Based on a series of conducted ma...

Abstract null null This work explores the multiobjective design optimization of symmetric and non-symmetric sandwich plates with ceramic-metal-ceramic functionally graded (FG) core, along with ceramic faces (if included), under thermo-mechanical loadings. The FG core is made of two functionally graded material (FGM) layers, each with the volume fractions of the constituent phases defined by a power-law function through-thickness, with the interface between them metal-rich and the core outer surf...

Abstract null null This study is dedicated to explore the transient coupled thermoelasticity solution of the FG-GPLRC multi-curved composite panel subjected to thermal shock for the first time. Time dependent equations of motion within the context of theory of elasticity are formulated and analytically solved by means of Navier approach. The temperature gradient is acquaried by employing the energy balance equation for the composite cylindrical panel subjected to thermal shock at its outer surfa...
