Analysis of mechanical behavior in bending of polymer composites using the finite elements method
The use of composite materials has increased in the recent decades, mainly in the aeronautics and automotives industries. In the present study is elaborated a computational simulation program of the bending test using the ...
Fatigue behaviour study on repaired aramid fiber/epoxy composites
Aramid fiber reinforced polymer composites have been used in a wide variety of applications, such as aerospace, marine, sporting equipment and in the defense sector, due to their outstanding properties at low density. The ...
The frame of fixed stars in Relational Mechanics
Relational mechanics is a gauge theory of classical mechanics whose laws do not govern the motion of individual particles but the evolution of the distances between particles. Its formulation gives a satisfactory answer ...
Mechanical behavior of isolated intervertebral disc
The study on several components of intervertebral joints is essential to understand the spine's degenerative mechanisms and to assess the best method for their treatment. For such study it is necessary to know the mechanical ...
