Abstract

One of the main problems associated with the manufacture of composite materials by liquid moulding (injection, infusion, etc.) is the generation of porosity. The optimization of the properties of the composites passes through a better understanding of the mechanisms of pore formation [...]

Abstract

The state-of-the-art additive manufacturing technology of continuous carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) is based on fused filament fabrication (FFF), which has a great potential for reproducing robust and complex geometries. However, 3D printed CFRP present relatively poor [...]

Abstract

We derive analytical relationships between the spatial covariance of the (natural) logarithm of hydraulic conductivity (K) and that of representative [...]

Abstract

Thermal conductivity plays a significant role in efficient energy usage, especially in the construction field. Low thermal conductivity is preferable because lower thermal conductivity will increase the thermal insulation provided by the concrete and reduce the heating and cooling [...]

Abstract

This study explores the behavior of blended mortars of low reactive bottom ashes (BA) and ordinary Portland cement (OPC) in an alkaline solution. Mortar mixtures incorporating OPC with different replacement levels (0% to 30% mass) were studied. Isothermal conduction calorimetric [...]

Abstract

This study aim at understanding the void formation, transport mechanisms and porosity evolution during OoA consolidation process. The laminates were conformed by stacking and compacting of prepregs by two different technologies: manual (Hand lay-up, HLU) and automatic (Automated [...]

Abstract

The addition of carbon fibers is the main alternative used for the manufacturing of conductive cements since, at a relative low price, provides a good combination of structural and functional properties. There are many different applications for this type of system, such as the [...]
