Thermal insulation and hydrophobization of wood impregnated with silica aerogel powder
The aim of the study was to develop a simple and cost-effective method to improve thermal insulation and hydrophobicity of wood. Herein, we attempted to use commercially available silica aerogel...
Thermally drawn biodegradable fibers with tailored topography for biomedical applications
There is a growing demand for polymer fiber scaffolds for biomedical applications and tissue engineering. Biodegradable polymers such as polycaprolactone have attracted particular attention due to...
Innovative sandwich panels made of wood bio-concrete and sisal fiber reinforced cement composites
This paper presents the results of the development of innovative sandwich panels made by combining wood bio-concretes and long sisal fibers reinforced composites. An experimental study of the wood...
Glass Foams Produced from Glass and Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguarinensis) Waste
Glass Foams Produced from Glass and Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguarinensis) Waste In this study, compositions containing green glass bottles and desiccated and crushed yerba mate (Ilex paraguarinensis) of...
Cellulose Aerogels Prepared From Rice Straw
Cellulose aerogels are green, ultralight and highly porous materials which are promising alternatives to common thermal insulation materials. In this study, cellulose aerogels were prepared from rice...
Numerical analysis of phase change materials/wood–plastic composite roof module system for improving thermal performance
Using phase change materials (PCMs) to store and release latent heat is one of the most efficient and reliable ways to reduce energy consumption. In this study, a PCM/wood–plastic composite (WPC)...
Bio-Composites Reinforced with Natural Fibers: Comparative Analysis of Thermal, Static and Dynamic-Mechanical Properties
In the present study, flax, jute and glass woven fabric samples were developed as reinforcement for composites with bio-epoxy resin. Flax fabrics were developed with plain weave, twill weave...
Thermal and Acoustic Insulation Boards from Microalgae Biomass, Poly-β-hydroxybutyrate and Glass Wool
Among the many functions that a building material needs to have, its insulation functions stand out. This type of materials acts by decreasing the conduction of heat/sound in to the environment. In...
Heat and Sound Insulation Applications of Pineapple Aerogels from Pineapple Waste
Given the harmful effects of agricultural waste residues on the environment and the abundance of pineapple byproducts after harvest, converting pineapple waste into a high-engineering value product...
