Mechanics of Fibrous Networks Book Excerpt:

Mechanics of Fibrous Networks covers everything there is to know about the mechanics of fibrous networks, from basic analysis of simple networks to the characterization of complex cases of deformation, loading, damage and fracture. Looking at various types of fibrous materials, the book studies their microstructural characterization, quantification of their mechanical properties, and performance at fiber and network levels. In addition, the book outlines numerical strategies for simulation, design and optimization of fibrous products. Techniques for testing the mechanical response of these materials in different loading and environmental conditions are outlined as well. This comprehensive resource will aid readers in obtaining qualitative data for various fibrous networks. In addition, it will help them develop modeling strategies and fine-tune mechanical performance fibrous networks and products by changing their microstructure to develop new products with desired properties and performance. Discusses all the main features and characteristics of fibrous networks, including their microstructural characterization, quantification of their mechanical properties, and performance at the fiber and network level Covers both basic analysis of simple networks as well as complex cases of deformation, loading, damage and fracture of fibrous networks Outlines advanced numerical schemes for simulation, design and optimization of various fibrous materials

Cellulosic Materials Book Excerpt:

The objectives of this book are twofold: 1. To provide a thorough examination of the materials science of cellulosic fibers with emphasis on the characterization of structure-property relations, and 2. To advance knowledge of how to best analyze cellulosic fibrous networks and composites, and, ultimately, engineer "novel" cellulose-based systems of superior performance and functionality. The design of new materials through the study of living systems, or bio-imitation, is burgeoning to become an established field, generally referred to as biomimetics. The latter, as with materials science, in general, prominently features multi-disciplinarity where new developments in mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering continue to inspire novel areas of research and development. The book is structured in five chapters which provide a sequential treatment of the running theme: deformation mechanics and the physical, morphological and mechanical characterization of native cellulose fibers networks and composites. The heart of the book is Chapter 3, Damage Accumulation in Fibers, which treats the experimental methodology for fatigue testing of single fibers and the engendered results. In-depth examinations of the morphology, structure and chemical composition of native cellulose fibers, and the mechanics of deformation in these natural composite fibers are proffered in Chapters 1 and 2, respectively. The fourth chapter, Fractal Simulation of Crack Propagation, presents a fractal-based approach to modeling damage accumulation in materials. Fractals lend themselves well to modeling such randomly-oriented phenomena as crack propagation and fracture. The last chapter, Fibrous Structures: Networks and Composites, comprises analytical approaches for handling networks and composites.

Handbook of Physical Testing of Paper Book Excerpt:

Scientists from academic and the paper industry compile as many aspects of testing properties of paper as possible into a broad reference to help people who plan, specify, and evaluate the physical and mechanical testing of paper material take advantage of the many developments in recent years. An initial essay in each volume discusses the independent invention and widespread use of paper in Mesoamerica beginning sometime before AD 660. The two volumes are paged and indexed separately, but do not seem to be topically distinct. The first edition, Handbook of Physical and Mechanical Testing of Paper and Paperboard appeared in 1983; the second contains 30 chapters, a third of which are new and the others substantially revised, updated, and expanded. c.

Nonlinear Mechanics of Soft Fibrous Materials Book Excerpt:

The book presents a state-of-the-art overview of the fundamental theories, established models and ongoing research related to the modeling of these materials. Two approaches are conventionally used to develop constitutive relations for highly deformable fibrous materials. According to the phenomenological approach, a strain energy density function can be defined in terms of strain invariants. The other approach is based on kinetic theories, which treats a fibrous material as a randomly oriented inter-tangled network of long molecular chains bridged by permanent and temporary junctions. At the micro-level, these are associated with chemical crosslinks and active entanglements, respectively. The papers include carefully crafted overviews of the fundamental formulation of the three-dimensional theory from several points of view, and address their equivalences and differences. Also included are solutions to boundary-value problems which are amenable to experimental verification. A further aspect is the elasticity of filaments, stability of equilibrium and thermodynamics of the molecular network theory.
