Hybridization effect on the mechanical properties of curaua/glass fiber composites
The aim of this paper was to evaluate the effect of hybridizing glass and curaua fibers on the mechanical properties of their composites. These composites were produced by hot compression molding, with distinct overall ...
The effect of locked screw angulation on the biomechanical properties of the S.P.S. Free-Block plate
Objectives: Among the locked internal fixators is one denominated S.P.S. (Synthesis Pengo System) Free-Block, which was designed with a locking ring that allows the screw to be locked and positioned obliquely. Due to the ...
Study of Brazilian commercial Oriented Strand Board panels using stress wave
Today lumber industry has shown a clearly evident trend towards wood based panels' production; and, among them, Oriented Strand Board (OSB) has become more and more prominent. Nondestructive Testing (NDT) such as stress ...
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 ...
Evaluation of mechanical and thermal properties after chemical degradation of PVC and HDPE geomembranes
Chemical compatibility between geomembranes and site-specific waste liquids should be assessed since the waste liquids are highly complex mixtures. This paper presents some considerations about the chemical compatibility ...
