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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
