An evaluation of the scanning electron microscope mirror effect to study viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composites (2017)
Journal Article
Ge, C., Wang, B., & Fancey, K. S. (2017). An evaluation of the scanning electron microscope mirror effect to study viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composites. doi:10.1016/j.mtcomm.2017.07.001

A viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composite (VPPMC) is produced by applying tensile creep to polymeric fibres, the creep load being removed before the fibres are moulded into a resin matrix. Following matrix curing, the viscoelastically... Read More

Application of time–stress superposition to viscoelastic behavior of polyamide 6,6 fiber and its “true” elastic modulus (2017)
Journal Article
Wang, B., & Fancey, K. S. (2017). Application of time–stress superposition to viscoelastic behavior of polyamide 6,6 fiber and its “true” elastic modulus. Journal of Applied Polymer Science, 134(24), doi:10.1002/app.44971. ISSN 0021-8995

The viscoelastic behavior of semi-crystalline polyamide 6,6 fiber is exploited in viscoelastically prestressed polymeric matrix composites. To understand better the underlying prestress mechanisms, strain–time performance of the fiber material is inv... Read More

Snap-through behaviour of a bistable structure based on viscoelastically generated prestress (2017)
Journal Article
