Book Description :

Original monograph discusses graphene within the carbon chemistry alternatives available to materials engineers and explains how it is incorporated into polymer-matrix, as well as ceramic- and metal-matrix composite materials. The book shows how different forms of graphene can be synthesized and then added to polymer composites as main or hybrid nanofillers, with a focus on how graphene affects electrical and mechanical properties. Offers the theory and data necessary to design novel graphene-based composites with unique load-bearing, flammability and wear properties. Throughout, the book lists many newly discovered mechanical, thermal and electrical properties of graphene. Emerging uses of graphene in films, coatings and colloidal suspensions (i.e., graphene with liquid matrices) are also investigated. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- TABLE OF CONTENTS Preface 1.

Book Description :

The fracture toughness perpendicular to the reinforcement of a composite is much greater than the volume fraction average of the fracture toughnesses of its components. Several years ago Outwater and Mandell independently proposed that the high toughness of glass reinforced plastics is due to the tensile energy stored in the debonded region for the fibers in the vicinity of the fracture surface. Using appropriate modifications of Irwin's expression for the strain energy release rate, this concept is shown to be valid in other composite systems as well. Analogies also extend its use to composites with ductile fibers and elastoplastic matrices. The data imply that the toughness contribution of the fiber to the overall composite toughness is proportional to the irrecoverable energy in the fiber, that is, the elastic and plastic energy within a debonded region of the fiber or within a portion of the fiber encased by matrix material that has yielded. The results obtained here, in conjunction with the Outwater-Mandell toughening mechanism, lead to a unified concept of toughening in fiber reinforced materials.

Book Description :

A good correlation was found between the experimental and numerical models so the results can be used to gain a better understanding of the toughening mechanisms in materials such as short fiber reinforced composites and ceramics. This experimental method is relatively inexpensive and easy to use so it can be applied to similar problems involving cracks and inhomogeneities."

Book Description :

A variety of ceramic materials has been recently shown to exhibit nonlinear stress strain behavior. These materials include transformation-toughened zirconia which undergoes a stress-induced crystallographic transformation in the vicinity of a propagating crack, microcracking ceramics, and ceramic-fiber reinforced ceramic matrices. Since many of these materials are under consideration for structural applications, understanding fracture in these quasi-brittle materials is essential. Portland cement concrete is a relatively brittle material. As a result mechanical behavior of concrete, conventionally reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete and fiber reinforced concrete is critically influenced by crack propagation. Crack propagation in concrete is characterized by a fracture process zone, microcracking, and aggregate bridging. Such phenomena give concrete toughening mechanisms, and as a result, the macroscopic response of concrete can be characterized as that of a quasi-brittle material. To design super high performance cement composites, it is essential to understand the complex fracture processes in concrete. A wide range of concern in design involves fracture in rock masses and rock structures. For example, prediction of the extension or initiation of fracture is important in: 1) the design of caverns (such as underground nuclear waste isolation) subjected to earthquake shaking or explosions, 2) the production of geothermal and petroleum energy, and 3) predicting and monitoring earthquakes. Depending upon the grain size and mineralogical composition, rock may also exhibit characteristics of quasi-brittle materials.
