Recycling of Automotive Vehicle’s Waste Glass to Develop Sustainable Glass Foam using a Curing-Sintering Process
Abstract: In Australia, yearly, around 22,500 Tons of waste glasses (WG) are discarded from end-of-life vehicles being landfilled because of the costly and convoluted recycling process. This...
Covalently bonded silica interfacial layer for simultaneously improving thermal and dielectric performance of copper/epoxy composite
Copper/epoxy (Cu/epoxy) composite is a kind of important thermal management material due to its high thermal conductivity, excellent mechanical robustness and low cost. However, susceptibility of Cu...
Physical, Thermal and Microstructural Characterization of Earth Mortars Stabilized with Incorporating Air Additive
In recent years, the search for non-conventional materials has intensified, aiming to reduce environmental impacts in the civil construction sector as a strategy for more sustainable development....
Enhanced thermally conductive and thermomechanical properties of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA)/graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) nanocomposites for radiator of electronic components
In this work, multi-layer hot pressing (MLHP) method was used to prepare the graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) filled polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) composites. Effect of GNP content on the viscoelastic...
Friction-wear performance in environmentally friendly brake composites: A comparison of two different test methods
In this study, an eco-friendly brake composite sample (EFP) was produced with 3.5% hazelnut shell dust as a natural additive material. Friction tests were performed on the manufactured pad sample and...
A systematic design to develop high-performance sintered particulate copper-composite as heat spreader material
A computational framework built on an effective-medium theory and mean-field homogenization is used to design particulate copper (Cu) composite for high-performance heat spreaders for electronic...
Environmentally-friendly ceramic bricks made from zeolite-poor rock and sawdust
The production of innovative building bricks from new materials has drawn a huge interest lately, targeting sustainability-related problems. This research investigates the utilization of zeolite-poor...
Tailoring the thermomechanical behaviour of epoxy with the incorporation of bamboo and graphite filler
The present study is committed to overcome the problem associated with fiber orientation, delamination in composite material. Micro-sized bamboo particulate and graphite is selected as potential...
Natural rubber nanocomposites: effect of carbon black/multi-walled carbon nanotubes hybrid fillers on the mechanical properties and thermal conductivity
This work presents the effect of carbon black (CB)/multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) hybridfiller system on the mechanical properties and thermal conductivity of natural rubber (NR) based...
