    • COLIN, Xavier; VERDU, Jacques (Nova Science, 2011)
      This chapter deals with the main causes of chemical ageing in organic matrix composites: hydrolysis, essentially in polyesters and polyamides, and oxidation in all kinds of polymer matrices. The first section is devoted ...
    • GALESKI, Andrzej; REGNIER, G (Hanser Fachbuchverlag, 2009)
      It is currently thought that crystalline polymers consists of lamellar crystals which are separated from each other by a layer of amorphous polymer and are held together by tie molecules through the amorphous phase [e.g. ...
    • COLIN, Xavier; VERDU, Jacques (Springer, 2014)
      In this chapter, several aspects of the ageing phenomena induced by water in organic matrix composites are examined, essentially from the physico-chemical point of view. It is first important to recognize that there are ...
    • FAVIER, VERONIQUE (Elsevier, 2014)
      Numerical simulation of semisolid processing can be carried out using one- or two-phase modeling. Various models based from either fluid or solid mechanics formalisms were developed. The most sophisticated one-phase models ...
    • NGUYEN-TRI, P.; SOLLOGOUB, Cyrille; GUINAULT, Alain (Sage, 2010)
      This article reports the preparation of recycled polypropylene (RPP)/bamboo fiber (BF) composite via direct melt blends using a twin screw extruder. The effects of the chemical treatment of BF surface (alkaline and ...
    • CHINESTA, Francisco; ABISSET-CHAVANNE, Emmanuelle (Springer, 2018)
      This book covers the main scales of description of matter, starting at its finest level, the quantum scale, moving through ab-initio, molecular dynamics, coarse grained approaches, to finish at the scale of kinetic theory ...
    • LEBENSOHN, Ricardo A.; HARTLEY, Craig S.; TOMÉ, Carlson N.; CASTELNAU, Olivier (TAYLOR & FRANCIS, 2010)
      This paper presents a crystallographically-based constitutive model of a single crystal deforming by climb and glide. The proposed constitutive law is an extension of the rate-sensitivity approach for single crystal ...
