Abstract: Concrete water cellar is an important facility to collect rainfall in Qingshuihe County of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China. The numerical simulation was carried out for the typical concrete water cellar structure using ABAQUS. Simulation results show that the maximum tensile stress and strain of cellar decrease with the cellar wall thickness increasing, and the strength of concrete C15 can meet the structural requirements of cellars with 10cm, 15cm, 20cm or 25cm wall respectively under the most unfavorable condition. The wall of cellar is thinner, its construction is more difficult in quality assurance. The wall of cellar is thicker, and its construction cost will increase. The construction of concrete cellar with 10cm wall is more difficult than those with thicker walls. It is suggested that the concrete water cellar with 15cm wall thickness is more suitable for being built in Qingshuihe County of the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region, China.

Abstract: Acid-functionalized carbon nanotube (fCNT)-poly (vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) composite films with different CNT contents (0-0.5wt%) were prepared by melt-blending followed by compression molding. The electrical resistance (R) of the composite films under tensile loading was measured by a two-probe method using a custom made equipment connected to digital multimeter. The films (0.35 and 0.5wt% fCNT composites) showed exponential increases in R with displacement after attaining the elastic strain. Further, the change in resistance divided by resistance (ΔR/R) showed a linear increase with strain (ε). The slope of the linear region is found to be higher for 0.35wt% fCNT composite (5.4) as compared to 0.5wt% fCNT composite (3.4), indicating a better sensitivity in the former case. This may be due to less number of electrical conducting paths in case of 0.35fCNT composite. On account of the results obtained, the composites promise as potential candidates for strain sensing in health monitoring.

Abstract: Five series of strain hardening ultra-high performance cementitious composites (SHUHPCC) incorporated with different types of fibers and hybrid fibers were produced. Three types of fibers (steel fiber, polyvinyl alcohol fiber and polyethylene fiber) were used as mono or hybrid reinforcement in SHUHPCC with the same volume fraction of 2%. The primary strengths, strain hardening and multiple cracking behaviors of hybrid fiber reinforced SHUHPCC under the uniaxial tensile are investigated. Test results show that the SHUHPCC containing PE fibers exhibited higher strain hardening capacity and lower first cracking strength than composites reinforced with mono PVA fiber or mono steel fiber. The composites containing PVA fibers or steel fibers have higher tensile strength and first cracking strength than the composite reinforced by mono PE fiber. Hybridization reinforcement with different fibers is able to make up defects of mono fiber reinforcement for SHUHPCC. The change laws of tensile strength and uniaxial compression strength of SHUHPCC with mono PE fiber and mono PVA fiber are opposite to each other.

Abstract: In this paper, it tests the mechanical properties of rabbit hair fibers in different temperatures and humidity. Contrast and analysis by experiment showed the temperature exerts a great influence on the tensile strain, breaking elongation, breaking force and breaking strength. In wetting condition, the tensile strain and breaking elongation increase, but the breaking force and breaking strength decrease. The rabbit hair fiber processing with too much water will make the structure easier to break and destroy.

Abstract: The epoxy resins are very popular and plentifully used synthetic resins. The bisphenol A-based (DGEBA) and bisphenol F-based epoxy resins (DGEBF) crystallization is phenomenon which is for that kind of resins natural. They are undercooled liquids and they tend to form the crystal structure at the ambient temperature. The subject of the research is to determine the effect of some crystallinity of DGEBF on chosen mechanical parameters. The degree of crystallinity was counted through the specific weights of crystallized bisphenol F-based epoxy resins. The prepared crystallized samples of DGEBA/DGEBF mixtures were mixed in appropriate weight ratio with isophorondiamine (IPD) based curing agent. Measured was hardness Shore D according to EN ISO 868 standard and tensile parameters according to EN ISO 527-1 standard. Furthermore, the effect of crystallinity on chosen mechanical parameters was observed. It was found out that with the higher crystallinity maximum tensile stress and hardness increased close to the standard parameters amorphous DGEBA and DGEBF.

Abstract: Molecular dynamics simulation was used to simulate the tension process of purity and containing impurity metal aluminum. Elastic constants of purity and containing impurity metal aluminum were calculated, and the effects of impurity on the elastic constants were also studied. The results show that O-Al bond and Al-Al bond near oxygen atoms could be the sites of crack nucleation or growth under tensile load, the method can be extended to research mechanical properties of other metals and alloys structures.

Abstract: The first steps of recovery and recrystallization in an IF-Ti steel after 35% deformation by uniaxial tension have been studied by Electron Back Scattered Diffraction (EBSD), Orientation Imaging Microscopy(™) (OIM) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). Two types of substructure are created after tensile strain: diamond shaped cells for the {111}<110> component and equiaxed cells for {001}<110> component. The recovery is by the decrease of dislocation density inside cells, the refinement of the cell walls, the vanishing of the cell wall, the cell coalescence and the cell growth. Recrystallized grains developed by two main recrystallization mechanisms: the “generalized recovery” and the “bulging”. Both mechanisms are based on continuous growth of subgrains followed or not by the migration of the prior grain boundaries.
