    Abstract: Diamond-like carbon (DLC) films have been given great attention in the last twenty years as candidate biomaterials due to its super mechanical property and bio-compatibilities. In this paper, many synthesis methods of DLC films are presented, and some researches related with DLC films applied on cardiovascular biomedical materials are mentioned. Ma... Show More
  • The Mechanism of Surfactant Assisted Dispersion of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes in Polyvinylpyrrolidone Solutions

    Abstract: Single walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) are an extremely attractive material due to their unmatched electronic, mechanical, and thermal properties, however; their hydrophobicity results in strong van der Waals interactions. This, combined with extremely high aspect ratios and flexibility, causes SWNTs to adhere strongly into tightly bundled ropes. I... Show More

    Abstract: To investigate the dielectric properties in the dense circles a program based on the Lorentz model is implemented. So, to understand the importance of the certain physical parameters (spectral width, specific pulsation and the number of particle) on the dielectric properties of the dense media, one varied these parameters to observe their influence...

    Abstract: The aim of this work is to predict the crack initiation and failure based on the Von Mises stress distributions at the edge of the overlap region. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software is used to investigate the stress distribution under tensile loading on composite lap joints. From the Von Mises stresses results, the bonded joint and hybrid joint... Show More

    DOI: 10.11648/j.css.20170203.15
    Abstract: The interaction of water with pre-heat treated silylated aerosil samples was investigated by adsorption of water and by contact angle measurements at 293 K. Type II adsorption isotherms were obtained. The resulting BET specific surface areas were found to depend on pre-treatment. Contact angles were measured by the captive bubble method at the thre...
