The role of molecular length scale on the viscoplastic response of amorphous polymer nanofibers in the glassy state (2015-01-21)Polymeric nanostructures are quite distinct because of the large ratio of surface-to-volume macromolecules which result in very different physical and mechanical behavior compared to bulk. Of special interest are nanostructures ...
Interaction between a conical shock wave and a plane compressible turbulent boundary layer at Mach 2.05 (2015-01-21)The interaction between an impinging conical shock wave with a plane compressible turbulent boundary layer has been studied at Mach 2.05. Surface oil flow and pressure-sensitive paint (PSP) data were obtained beneath the ...
(2015-01-21)The study of aircraft icing is critical to ensure the safety of any aircraft that might experience icing conditions in flight, including general, commercial, and military aviation. The certification of modern commercial ...
(2015-01-21)This work presents the results of the numerical simulation of ionized gas ﬂows inside the torch of an inductively coupled plasma facility in the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics. The main purpose of this work is the ...
Effects of micro- and nano-structure on the deformation response of a Ag60Cu40 lamellar and rod-in-matrix eutectic alloy (2015-01-21)The presented work investigates the mechanical response of the silver-copper eutectic system (Ag60Cu40, subscripts indicating atomic percent) linking material deformation to microstructural properties. The Ag60Cu40 material ...
