On modeling shape memory polymers as elastic two-phase composite materials
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
A model has been proposed recently, which describes the experimentally observed mechanical behavior of some shape memory polymers. It considers a purely thermoelastic behavior, without strain rate effects, and assumes essentially that the polymer can be considered as a two-phase composite, with glassy and rubbery phases having volume fractions that depend on temperature only. Since a uniform stress hypothesis was used in the original formulation, with an inconsistency when thermal expansion was considered, this model is revisited here by taking advantage of the many results that have been established in the theory of composite materials. It is shown, especially, that a uniform strain hypothesis is more appropriate than assuming a uniform stress.

A simple thermal chamber was used to regulate the thermal environment during testing ...
Experimental study and numerical simulation of the vertical bounce of a polymer ball over a wide temperature range DIANI, Julie; GILORMINI, Pierre; AGBOBADA, Gerry (Springer, 2014)The dependence to temperature of the rebound of a solid polymer ball on a rigid slab is investigated. An acrylate polymer ball is brought to a wide range of temperatures, covering its glass to rubbery transition, and let ...
DIANI, Julie; GILORMINI, Pierre (Elsevier, 2017)A three-dimensional cubic Monte Carlo lattice model is considered to test the impact of volume on the molecularmobility of amorphous polymers. Assuming classic polymer chain dynamics, the concept of locked volume limiting ...
On necessary precautions when measuring solid polymer linear viscoelasticity with dynamic analysis in torsion DIANI, Julie; GILORMINI, Pierre (Elsevier, 2017)Solid polymer linear viscoelasticity in shear is often characterized by applying torsion and using the Saint-Venant solution when rectangular prismatic specimens are considered. It is shown that experimental dynamic torsion ...
A numerical study of the influence of polydispersity on the behaviour until break of a reinforced hyperelastic material with a cohesive interface TOULEMONDE, Paul-Aymé; DIANI, Julie; GILORMINI, Pierre; DESGARDIN, Nancy (EDP Sciences, 2015)Solid propellants manufacturers commonly monitor the granulometries of the explosive fllers they introduce in the material to pack high fller volume fraction and thus obtain satisfactory energetic performance. However, to ...
