Abstract The electrical performance of delicate electro-devices is subjected to the external environment, suffering significant performance decay in conditions with extremely low temperature. In this study, a highly stretchable and high effective carbon nanotube (CNT) heater was developed for multiple applications. The CNT-based heater has good stretchability with the strain of 105%, and a high thermal response that reached 206 °C with a limited applied voltage (2 V) and heating up time (~30 s)....

Abstract In the past few years, tissue-engineered total disc replacement (TE-TDR) as a possible strategy to repair or regenerate intervertebral disc (IVD) has attracted considerable attention. However, to construct a patient-specific cell-based IVD scaffold with appropriate mechanical properties is still a challenge. The objective of this work is to develop stem cell-laden scaffolds mimicking the structure of native IVD. For this, an integrated 3D bioprinting system was used to combine polylacti...

Abstract Automated Fibre Placement (AFP) and Filament Winding (FW) provide flexibility to tailor not only fibre angles but the distribution of fibres and orientations within the structure, with huge potential for laminate performance optimization. These advanced technologies, however, create intrinsic defects that result in potentially critical geometric discontinuities (tow gaps/overlaps, tow weaving, etc.). This paper presents a high-fidelity geometric modelling tool of tow-wise manufactured l...
Abstract In Resin Transfer Molding (RTM), resin precursors of thermoset or, more recently, thermoplastic polymers are generally employed, raising issues related to the chemical reaction taking place during and after part processing. In this study, already polymerized polyamide-6 with low melt-viscosity (∼ 30 Pa·s at 280 °C), is injected at low pressure (

Abstract A global-to-local modelling strategy is presented based on a sub-modelling approach to predict the formation of macroscale defects in bi-axial non-crimp fabric (NCF) during double diaphragm forming (DDF). A full-scale global simulation is initially performed using a coarse membrane element mesh (5 mm edge length) to locate areas containing potential defects. Refined local simulations are subsequently performed using high a fidelity shell-element mesh (1 mm edge length) to explicitly pre...

Abstract This paper investigated the heat-treatment effects on the performances of 3D printed continuous carbon fiber (CCF) reinforced composites (CCFRCs). Specimens with different layer distributions were post-treated at different heat-treatment conditions. The heat-treatment influences on material’s crystallinity, porosity and dimensional stabilities with underlying mechanisms were discussed. Flexural properties of the composites were also evaluated by linking the structure evolution and defor...

Abstract A well-designed multilayered composite film with alternating thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) nanofiber membranes and silver nanowire (AgNW) layers was fabricated by vacuum-assisted filtration. The continuous AgNW conductive layer and the sandwich structure facilitated electron transmission efficiency and electromagnetic (EM) wave dissipation through multiple reflections and resonance effect, which resulted in a high electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding effectiveness (SE) of 97....

Abstract In this study, we decided to synthesize a flame-retardant triazine-based covalent organic framework (FT-COF) via solvothermal reaction, to improve the fire safety and mechanical properties of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). By adding 3.0 wt% of FT-COF, the tensile strength and elongation of TPU increased by 69% and 12%, respectively. After incorporating of FT-COF nanoparticles, the thermal stability of TPU was significantly improved that resulted in the increasing of char residue up t...

Abstract Metallic and composite z-filaments have been reported as effective solutions for improving the interlaminar fatigue resistance of fibre-polymer laminates, which is important to many applications that demand high delamination fatigue endurance. Here, we examine the mechanisms of three different z-filaments made from metallic and fibre composite materials and to quantify their effectiveness in improving the modes I and II interlaminar fatigue resistance. Interlaminar fatigue experiments w...
