Parametric sensitivity analysis to maximise auxetic effect of polymeric fibre based helical yarn. (2016)
Journal Article
MCAFEE, J. and FAISAL, N.H. 2017. Parametric sensitivity analysis to maximise auxetic effect of polymeric fibre based helical yarn. Composite structures [online], 162, pages 1-12. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.compstruct.2016.11.077

Studies on designing polymeric fibres based helical auxetic yarn (HAY) to maximise their auxetic effect are yet to propose optimised design configurations for general impact mitigation applications. This study therefore presents optimal design parame... Read More about Parametric sensitivity analysis to maximise auxetic effect of polymeric fibre based helical yarn..

Composite sandwich structures consisting of two layers with an adhesive contacting interface are of importance in a number of industrial applications such as aerospace, marine and automotive. This research therefore aims to characterise the failure b... Read More about Acoustic emission testing of composite-to-metal and metal-to-metal adhesive bond strengths..

Stress analysis at the interface of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints subjected to 4-point bending: finite element method. (2016)
Journal Article
PRATHURU, A.K., FAISAL, N.H., JIHAN, S., STEEL, J.A. and NJUGUNA, J. 2017. Stress analysis at the interface of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints subjected to 4-point bending: finite element method. Journal of adhesion [online], 93(11), pages 855-878.

This paper presents a study of stress states in two-dimensional models of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints subjected to 4-point flexural loading using the finite element (FE) method. The FE simulations were carried out on adhesive bonded joint...
