Natural fiber suspensions in thermoplastic polymers. I. analysis of fiber damage during processing
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2007-02)
The final properties of the composites materials are strongly dependent on the residual aspect ratio, orientation, and distribution of the fibers, which are determined by the processing conditions. Present work is a ...
Microwave interferometric technique for characterizing few mode fibers
We propose and experimentally demonstrate a simple and accurate technique for measuring differential mode group delay (DMGD) in few mode fibers (FMF). A frequency-swept microwave signal is modulated on a filtered optical ...
Lead-germanate glasses and fibers: A practical alternative to tellurite for nonlinear fiber applications
We report on the fabrication of novel lead-germanate glasses and fibers. We have characterized these glasses in terms of their thermal properties, Raman spectra and refractive indices (both linear and nonlinear) and present ...
LYOCELL AND COTTON FIBERS AS REINFORCEMENTS FOR A THERMOSET POLYMER
(NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIV DEPT WOOD & PAPER SCIRALEIGH, 2012)
Cellulose fibers obtained from the textile industry (lyocell) were investigated as a potential reinforcement for thermoset phenolic matrices, to improve their mechanical properties. Textile cotton fibers were also considered. ...
Exploring the potential of functionally graded materials concept for the development of fiber cement
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2010)
In this study we establish the concept of functionally graded fiber cement. We discuss the use of statistical mixture designs to choose formulations and present ideas for the production of functionally graded fiber cement ...
Modification and Characterization of Hemp and Sisal Fibers
(Taylor & Francis IncPhiladelphiaEUA, 2014)
Modeling of As2S3 raman fiber lasers operating in the mid-infrared
A numerical study of As2S3 Raman fiber lasers is carried out to show their potential for the entire coverage of the 3–4-m spectral band. Experimental results are first obtained from such a laser operated under controlled ...
Histochemical study of muscle fiber types in Synbranchus marmoratus Bloch, 1795
The myotomal muscle of Synbranchus marmoratus was investigated using histochemical and immunohistochemical reactions. This musculature is composed of a superficial red compartment, uniformly distributed around the trunk ...
Evaluation of the flexural strength of carbon fiber-, quartz fiber-, and glass fiber-based posts
This study investigated the flexural strength of eight fiber posts (one carbon fiber, one carbon/quartz fiber, one opaque quartz fiber, two translucent quartz fiber, and three glass fiber posts). Eighty fiber posts were ...
Curaua fibers - The queen of the fibers
Nowadays, the usage of natural resources is under worldwide growing interest. From this perspective, different renewable sources have been studied to replace man-made polymers or even improve the properties of current ...
