Abstract The composite overwrapped pressure vessel (COPV) with its excellent properties is used for high-pressure storage in aerospace industries. Before they can be reliably incorporated into space flight applications, a significant amount of work has been conducted for better predicting the condition status and residual life of COPVs. A novel MXene film sensor technology that can provide real-time and in situ structural health monitoring of composite structures was proposed in this work. An ex...

In this study, a novel sensor with high sensitivity and linear was prepared based on two-dimensional (2D) material (MXene) and ink, which can be used for deformation and damage monitoring of structural composites. The MXene was efficiently prepared by etching Ti3AlC2 powder with LiF–HCl solution and subsequent vacuum drying. The viscosity and adhesion of MXene/ink composites were controlled by changing the ratio of solvent (dimethyl sulfoxide) to ink. The MXene/ink was printed on the surface of ...

Smart multifunctional composites exhibit enhanced physical and mechanical properties and can provide structures with new capabilities. The authors have recently initiated a research program aimed at developing new strain-sensing pavement materials enabling roadway-integrated weigh-in motion (WIM) sensing. The goal is to achieve an accurate WIM for infrastructure monitoring at lower costs and with enhanced durability compared to off-the-shelf solutions. Previous work was devoted to formulating a ...

Abstract In recent years, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) incorporated smart cement composites have attracted significant attention as it opens up a new avenue to develop new class of sensors, in general, and uniquely enables the structural materials to reflect the internal stress state, in particular. However, dispersion of CNTs, threshold limit, polarization effect, type and design of electrode, effect of functionalization of CNTs etc. on piezo-resistive properties of cementitious nanocomposites need ...

Smart materials are promising technologies for reducing the instrumentation cost required to continuously monitor road infrastructures, by transforming roadways into multifunctional elements capable of self-sensing. This study investigates a novel algorithm empowering smart pavements with weigh-in-motion (WIM) characterization capabilities. The application domain of interest is a cementitious-based smart pavement installed on a bridge over separate sections. Each section transduces axial strain ...

Sensing concrete has the capability to sense its condition and environmental changes, including stress (or force), strain (or deformation), crack, damage, temperature, and humidity, by incorporating functional fillers. Sensing concrete has recently attracted major research interest aiming to produce smart infrastructures with elegantly integrated health monitoring abilities. In addition to having highly improved mechanical properties, sensing concrete has multifunctional properties, such as impr...

Twelve types of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) at contents of 0.1%, 0.5% and 0.8% were incorporated into cementitious composites. A new method to calculate the electrical resistivity of these composites was proposed. The effects of MWCNT types and contents on electrical resistivity and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) of cementitious composites were investigated. The equivalent circuit model of cementitious composites with different types of MWCNTs was established. Experiment...

Abstract Applications of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in traditional cementitious materials, have been accentuated more attentions in the recent years. Some properties of these materials were improved by applying suitable concentration of CNTs. This article presents a review of the earlier studies carried out on adding CNTs into traditional cementitious materials. Cement hydration, workability, density, mechanical strength, shrinkage, ductility, freeze-thaw resistance, fire resistance, porosity, wate...

Abstract Experimental studies are carried out to examine the microstructure and mechanical performance of carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced cementitious composites at elevated temperatures (25 °C, 200 °C, 400 °C and 600 °C). Two different contents (0.1% and 0.2% by weight of cement) of CNT are added to cement paste. X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) results show that CNT does not improve or impede the hydration of cement minerals at room temperature, while at higher temperatures the further hydratio...
