Aspects of Mechanical Behavior and Modeling of a Tropical Unsaturated Soil
The research studies the applicability of two elastoplastic models for the collapse prediction of the lateritic soil profile from Southeastern Brazil. These tropical soils have peculiar geotechnical behavior, due to their ...
Evolution of the mechanical properties of a tropical soil stabilized with lime and ash of rice rind
The ash of rice rind is a pozzolanic material that reacts with the calcium hydroxide (Ca (OH)2) forming bonding composites, when finely worn out and in water presence. Considering this behavior, the objective of the present ...
Hardness and compressive strength of indirect composite resins: effects of immersion in distilled water
(Blackwell Publishing, 2004-11-01)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of ageing in distilled water on the hardness and compressive strength of a direct composite resin Z100, a feldspatic porcelain (Noritake) and three indirect composites ...
Ferroelastic behavior of LaCoO3: A comparison of impression and compression techniques
(Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
Ferroelastic mechanical behavior of LaCoO3 was investigated by the impression test and compared with the conventional compression test using digital image correlation technique for deformation measurement. The results show ...
Remarks on orthotropic elastic models applied to wood
Wood is generally considered an anisotropic material. In terms of engineering elastic models, wood is usually treated as an orthotropic material. This paper presents an analysis of two principal anisotropic elastic models ...

Foaming of EVA/starch blends: Characterization of the structure, physical properties, and biodegradability
Foams produced from blends of an ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) with high VA (vinyl acetate) content (28%) and corn starch have been successfully fabricated using an improved compression molding technique. A detailed ...
