چکیده

Free vibration characteristics of polymer composite plates reinforced by graphene nanosheets employing the Eringen nonlocal elasticity theory were investigated. Theoretical formulations are derived based on Hamilton’s principle implementing linear orthotropic constitutive equations of lamina while the behavior of nanostructure points affected by all other nonlocal points is also taken into account. For obtaining the mechanical properties, a new modified Halpin–Tsai model is employed. Governing equations are solved by developing an efficient analytical solution. The accuracy of the presented method is examined, by comparing the results with literature in which a good agreement is observed. Effects of different boundary conditions, volume fraction, graphene sheets orientation angle and Eringen nonlocal parameter on frequency of nanocomposite are analyzed. Effects of the presence of vacancy defects in the nanosheet on the behavior of reinforced composites were also studied. The results illustrate that by increasing the nonlocal parameter the natural frequency showed a decreasing trend while by increasing the graphene sheet’s volume fraction, natural frequencies significantly increased. It could be concluded that the orientation angle variations in graphene sheets, did not play an important role on the natural frequency of nanocomposite as well as degradation of properties resulted in from vacancy defects.

This paper addresses the problem of quantifying the mechanical contribution of rockbolts installed systematically around tunnels (regularly spaced around the tunnel) excavated in rock masses. Assuming that the mechanical contribution of grouted rockbolts is that of increasing internal pressure within a broken rock mass, a new procedure for computation of ground response curves for a circular tu...

Graphene is a two-dimensional form of graphite made up of a single layer of carbon atoms in a honeycomb lattice that has attracted tremendous interest for its novel physical properties. A key challenge that has emerged is how to synthesize large amounts of graphene (large area or mass) at low cost. The objective of this project is to explore an entirely new method to exfoliate graphene from com...

This paper describes the application of refined plate theory to investigate free vibration and buckling analyses of functionally graded nanocomposite plates reinforced by aggregated carbon nanotube (CNT). The refined shear deformation plate theory (RSDT) uses four independent unknowns and accounts for a quadratic variation of the transverse shear strains across the thickness, satisfying the zer...

In the present investigation, we successfully fabricate a hybrid polymer nanocomposite containing epoxy/polyester blend resin and graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs) by a novel technique. A high intensity ultrasonicator is used to obtain a homogeneous mixture of epoxy/polyester resin and graphene nanoplatelets. This mixture is then mixed with a hardener using a high-speed mechanical stirrer. The trap...
