Effect of Silane Treatment of Interleaved Nanofibers on Mode I Fracture Toughness of Glass/Epoxy Composite Silane treatment of electrpspun glass nanofibers mat is performed by two different methods namely-liquid and vapor phase.
Mode I fracture toughness is characterized as per ASTM D5528.
Project 2: In-situ SEM Mechanical Characterization of Glass Nanofiber Elastic Modulus of elctrospun glass nanofibers is obtained by conducting in-situ tensile test on individual nanofiber using MEMS device.
Project 3: Mechanical Properties of Silane treated Glass Nanofibers-Epoxy Interphase using Molecular Dynamics Atomistic model of interphase as created by modeling interphase as interpenetrating network of silane in epoxy.
The properties of the interphase are predicted by conducting MD simulation using Materials Studio software.
Project 4: Design and Manufacture of Constant Stress Composite Cantilever Beam Constant stress composite beam is designed using beam theory.
FE analysis is done using ANSYS.
Beam is fabricated from glass /epoxy prepregs using ply drop approach.
Experiment was performed to measure stress by measuring strain values along beam span.
2 Project 5: Force Modulation Atomic Force Microscopy to Study Effect of Silane Treatment on Properties of Nanofiber-Epoxy Resin Interphase In this project, we investigated nanofiber epoxy resin interphase using force modulation microscopy.
The objective is to characterize the effect of silane treatment on mechanical properties of interphase.
