A fiber optic interferometer for measuring sub-micrometer displacements of ciliary bundles
(Virginia Tech, 1995-03-18)
The inner ear contains cells with ciliary bundles that have been identified as sites of mechanoelectrical transduction; they take a mechanical stimuli and convert it to an electrical response. The ciliary bundles vary ...
A study of vibrations in rotating laminated composite plates accounting for shear deformation and rotary inertia
(Virginia Tech, 1989-04-21)
A ftrst-order shear deformation plate theory is used to predict free vibration frequencies in rotating laminated composite plates. The theory accounts for geometric non-linearity in the form of von Karman strains. The plate ...
A method for the ply-level elastic characterization of composite materials using thick tubular angle-ply specimens
(Virginia Tech, 1993-12-15)
<p>Accurate mechanical properties are critical to the design and use of composite material structures. Due to the available processing methods, the properties of ceramic matrix materials are especially sensitive to the ...
Effect of ultraviolet exposure on the durability of polycarbonate
(Virginia Tech, 1995-08-05)
Nonlinear analysis of free-edge effects in laminated composites under axial loading
(Virginia Tech, 1987-05-05)
<p>A finite element model based on the quasi-three dimensional displacement field of Pipes and Pagano  with nonlinear strain-displacement relations is developed to study the free edge problem of composite laminates. ...
Long term behavior of Arall laminates
(Virginia Tech, 1988-06-05)
<p>The behavior of ARALL (ARamid ALuminum Laminates) subjected to tensionâ tension cyclic loading was experimentally investigated as a first step towards the understanding of the fatigue damage mechanisms in Arall ...
A study of seismic response of rotating machines subjected to multi-component base excitation
(Virginia Tech, 1992-05-16)
Rotating machines such as motors, generators, turbines, etc. are crucial mechanical components of modern industrial and power generation facilities. For proper functioning of these facilities during and after an earthquake, ...
A beam test for adhesives
(Virginia Tech, 1988-07-15)
<p>The strength of materials solution for a new bonded cantilever beam test specimen to determine adhesive shear properties is reviewed and discussed. A parametric analysis for the adhesive shear stress and for the end ...
The development and evaluation of an alternative powder prepregging technique for use with larc-tpi/graphite composites
(Virginia Tech, 1991-01-07)
