Abstract Carbon nanofillers are widely used to blend with polymers for fabricating high-performance polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) toward structural, electronic and sensory material applications. However, it is generally of challenge to achieve significant property improvement by using single carbon nanofiller. Alternatively, using hybrid carbon nanofillers has been proved to be a facile and promising strategy to effectively boost electrical and piezoresistive properties of PNCs. This paper provi...

Abstract Herein, a printing strategy was proposed and expended, which allows fabricating diverse geometries of cellular continuous fiber-reinforced composites (CFRCs) with fiber distribution and interlacement in the cellular structure uniformly. A class of printed triangle-filled cellular structure composites was prepared to present the detail of the printing strategy. The effects of printing and structural parameters on the mechanical properties, as well as shape memory performance of printed C...

Abstract Silicone rubber (SR) plays an irreplaceable role in biomedicine and aerospace applications due to its biocompatibility, flexibility and excellent stability in extreme harsh conditions. However, only a few studies focus on SR based shape memory materials, and the increasing intelligent applications of SR materials are limited by the insufficient strength and poor designable recovery behavior. Herein, we report a simple method via monomers/prepolymers blend and in situ polymerization/cros...

Abstract A new strategy is proposed for preparation of continuous fibre reinforced cellular structural composites (CFRCSCs) based on a fused filament fabrication. This method can endow some continuous fibers in cellular structure with good orientations by well design of fiber printing path and reconfiguration of extrusion, and can distribute fibers evenly and interleave fibers uniformly in the structure. The printed cellular structure is able to display predictable and reasonable tensile propert...

Three-dimensional (3D) printing has been successfully applied for the fabrication of polymer components ranging from prototypes to final products. An issue, however, is that the resulting 3D printed parts exhibit inferior mechanical performance to parts fabricated using conventional polymer processing technologies, such as compression moulding. The addition of fibres and other materials into the polymer matrix to form a composite can yield a significant enhancement in the structural strength of ...

Abstract The recent rapid development of technology has demanded smart materials with tailoring a bridge between macro properties and sophisticated micro and nano characteristic. Principally, shape memory polymers (SMPs) will come to play as an indispensable part of numerous aspects of human activity. Nevertheless, the low mechanical strength and thermal conductivity of SMPs have primarily restricted their applications. To impart shape memory behaviour and mechanical properties, we fabricated a ...

Abstract Four-dimensional (4D) printing technology of continuous carbon fiber reinforced shape memory polymer composites is a potential manufacturing process for lightweight and high-strength intelligent composite structures. In this study, a 3D printer with dual feed channels based on the fused deposition modeling (FDM) was designed to fabricate continuous carbon fiber reinforced shape memory poly(lactic acid)-based composites (CFRSMPC). The impact of various printing parameters on the bending ...

Abstract The filler network in smart composites is capable of dictating the strain actuation and electric generation behaviour in shape-memory and dielectric-elastomer systems, respectively. Noteworthy, the dissipation parameters, such as loss modulus and dielectric loss, are the critical criteria for designing an ideal smart polymeric composite. For manipulating dissipation parameters, we developed three types of nanofiller, including (I) simple graphene-oxide (GO), (II) reduced graphene-oxide ...

Abstract The aim of this paper is to introduce dual-material auxetic meta-sandwiches by four-dimensional (4D) printing technology for reversible energy absorption applications. The meta-sandwiches are developed based on an understanding of hyper-elastic feature of soft polymers and elasto-plastic behaviors of shape memory polymers and cold programming derived from theory and experiments. Dual-material lattice-based meta-structures with different combinations of soft and hard components are fabri...
