Title: Nonlinear Dynamic Properties of Layered Composite Materials

Abstract

We present an application of the asymptotic homogenization method to study wave propagation in a one-dimensional composite material consisting of a matrix material and coated inclusions. Physical nonlinearity is taken into account by considering the composite's components as a Murnaghan material, structural nonlinearity is caused by the bonding condition between the components.

  • Novel LDH intercalated with organic aliphatic long-chain anion was large-scale synthesized innovatively by high-energy ball milling in one pot. The linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE)/layered double hydroxides (LDH) composite films with enhanced heat retention, thermal, mechanical, optical and water vapor barrier properties were fabricated by melt blending and blowing process. FT IR, XRD, SEM results show that LDH particles were dispersed uniformly in the LLDPE composite films. Particularly, LLDPE composite film with 1% LDH exhibited the optimal performance among all the composite films with a 60.36% enhancement in the water vapor barrier property and a 45.73 °C increase in themore » temperature of maximum mass loss rate compared with pure LLDPE film. Furthermore, the improved infrared absorbance (1180–914 cm{sup −1}) of LLDPE/LDH films revealed the significant enhancement of heat retention. Therefore, this study prompts the application of LLDPE/LDH films as agricultural films with superior heat retention. - Graphical abstract: The fabrication process of LLDPE/LDH composite films. - Highlights: • LDH with basal spacing of 4.07 nm was synthesized by high-energy ball milling. • LLDPE composite films with homogeneous LDH dispersion were fabricated. • The properties of LLDPE/LDH composite films were improved. • LLDPE/LDH composite films show superior heat retention property.« less
  • The system CoIn{sub 2}S{sub 4x}Se{sub 4(1-x)} has been investigated by X-ray powder methods on samples quenched at 700 deg. C. The spinel type phase has a phase width of 1{>=}x>0.9. A new layered compound is formed for 0.9>x>0.45 which crystallizes with the {alpha}-FeGa{sub 2}S{sub 4}-type with a=392.6 pm and c=1270.3 pm (x=0.5) for the hexagonal cell. Platelike crystals of the layered phase are obtained by transport reactions with iodine in a temperature gradient 750{yields}700 deg. C. The band gaps of these crystals measured by optical absorption vary from 1.2 to 1.4 eV. The electrical conductivities of the crystals are foundmore » in the order of 10{sup -5} {omega}{sup -1} cm{sup -1}.« less
  • Because of the increased application of composite materials in high-temperature environments, the thermoelastic analysis of laminated composite structures is important. Many researchers have applied the classical lamination theory to analyze laminated plates under thermomechanical loading, which neglects shear deformation effects. The transverse shear deformation effects are not negligible as the ratios of inplane elastic modulus to transverse shear modulus are relatively large for fiber-reinforced composite laminates. The application of first-order shear deformation theory for the thermoelastic analysis of laminated plates has been reported by only a few investigators. Reddy and Hsu have considered the thermal bending of laminated plates. Themore » analytical and finite element solutions for the thermal bucking of laminated plates have been reported by Tauchert and Chandrashekara, respectively. However, the first-order shear deformation theory, based on the assumption of constant distribution of transverse shear through the thickness, requires a shear correction factor to account for the parabolic shear strain distribution. Higher order theories have been proposed which eliminate the need for a shear correction factor. In the present work, nonlinear dynamic analysis of laminated plates subjected to rapid heating is investigated using a higher order shear deformation theory. A C(sup 0) finite element model with seven degrees of freedom per node is implmented and numerical results are presented for laminated graphite/aluminum plates.« less
  • (LiAl{sub 2}(OH){sub 6})Cl is a layered compound in which lithium and aluminum atoms are surrounded octahedrally by hydroxyl groups and constitute the two-dimensional framework. Anions, such as Cl{sup {minus}}, are positioned between these sheets in order to preserve neutrality. In this study, we have examined the intercalation of 4-nitrohippuric acid (NHA) into the layers from an acetone solution. The gallery height, as measured by X-ray diffraction, is {approximately}18 {angstrom}, indicating that the NHA molecules are stacked perpendicular to the layers. Optical spectroscopic studies have shown that the NHA molecules are held in the interlayers as carboxylic acid and the processmore » of intercalation is not by an ion-exchange process. The orientation of the NHA molecules in the interlayers leads to an ordered arrangement of dipoles, and the material exhibits frequency-doubling characteristics, generating 532-nm radiation from incident 1,064 nm. This is particularly interesting, since crystals of pure NHA do not exhibit any nonlinear optical properties due to a centrosymmetric packing in the crystal.« less
  • A spatial quantum model of spontaneous parametric down-conversion in nonlinear layered structures is developed expanding the interacting vectorial fields into monochromatic plane waves. A two-photon spectral amplitude depending on the signal- and idler-field frequencies and propagation directions is used to derive transverse profiles of the emitted fields as well as their spatial correlations. Intensity spatial profiles and their spatial correlations are mainly determined by the positions of transmission peaks formed in these structures with photonic bands. A method for geometry optimization of the structures with respect to efficiency of the nonlinear process is suggested. Several structures composed of GaN/AlN layersmore » are analyzed as typical examples. They allow the generation of photon pairs correlated in several emission directions. Photon-pair generation rates increasing better than the second power of the number of layers can be reached. Also, structures efficiently generated photon pairs showing antibunching and anticoalescence can be obtained. Three reasons for splitting the correlated area in photonic-band-gap structures are revealed: zig-zag movement of photons inside the structure, spatial symmetry, and polarization-dependent properties. Also, spectral splitting can be observed in these structures.« less
