11. Prediction of Elastic Properties of Heterogeneous Materials With Complex Microstructures
Yong Ni, Martin Y Chiang
A homogenization method combining the Eshelby equivalent eigenstrain approach and the phase-field microelasticity for numerically solving the eigenstrain, is developed to predict all the effective elastic constants of three-dimensional heterogeneous ...
12. Structure-property relationships for methyl-terminated alkyl self-assembled monolayers
Frank W DelRio, Dave Rampulla, Cherno Jaye, Gheorghe Stan, Richard Swift Gates, Daniel A Fischer, Robert Francis Cook
Structure-property relationships for methyl-terminated alkyl self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are developed using near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (NEXAFS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). NEXAFS C K-edge spectra are used to ...
13. Thickness effect on the viscoelastic properties of polystyrene thin films as measured by thermal wrinkling
Edwin P Chan, Santanu S. Kundu, Qinhuang Lin, Christopher M Stafford
The viscoelastic properties of polymer thin films can have a significant impact on the performance in many small-scale devices. In this work, we use thermal wrinkling, which is a phenomenon based on a thermally-initiated instability, to measure visco ...
