Recycled Aggregate (RA) generated from the construction industry is used as a material for sustainable construction. The old mortar attached to these aggregates makes it porous and are generally used for low-grade applications. However, by infusing with silica fumes, the properties of recycled aggregate concrete (RAC) can be improved, as the silica fumes get infused into the pores of old mortar attached to it. In this study, the optimum percentage of recycled aggregate that can be used in fresh concrete for higher grade applications was found out. Design of experiments (DoE) was used to optimize percentage of silica fumes and recycled aggregate to achieve optimum properties of concrete. Equations to predict the properties of concrete were also modelled using regression analysis. More »»

In nuclear applications, ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) rubber is the material of choice as gaskets and O-rings due to its radiations resistance. In nuclear fuel reprocessing, in addition to radiation, the elastomeric components have to withstand paraffinic hydrocarbons as well. But, EPDM has poor resistance to hydrocarbons. To enhance the durability of EPDM in such environments, EPDM-chlorobutyl rubber (CIIR) blends of varying compositions were developed and characterized for mechanical, thermal, dielectric, and solvent sorption behavior. Spectroscopic and morphological analysis was used to evaluate the compatibility of blends. Due to synergistic effect, the optimal composition of blends with superior mechanical properties and solvent resistance were found to be 60 to 80% EPDM and 20 to 40% CIIR. The optimized blends were irradiated with gamma rays at cumulative doses up to 2 MGy. Based on spectroscopic, morphological, mechanical, thermogravimetric, and sorption properties, blend containing 80% EPDM was found to have superior retention of properties after irradiation. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Response surface methodology was used for assessing the role of various compounding ingredients, including zinc oxide, antioxidant, coagent, oil, and filler, in peroxide vulcanization of natural rubber. A face-centered central composite design with four factors at three different levels was used to obtain the relationship between vulcanizate properties and the level of ingredients. The four factors selected were filler and oil ratio and the contents of zinc oxide, antioxidant, and coagent. The filler and oil ratio was kept constant throughout the experiment. The vulcanizates were evaluated for their mechanical properties: tensile strength, elongation, modulus (M100), tear strength, hardness, compression set (70 and 100°C), and crosslink density. Regression equations were generated to model the properties of interest, and response surfaces and contour diagrams were plotted. © 2016, Rubber Division of the American Chemical Society. More »»

In this investigation, Polyetherimide (PEI) reinforced with multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) using novel melt blending technique. Surface of MWCNTs are modified by acid treatment as well as by plasma treatment. PEI nano composites with 2 wt % treated MWCNT shows about 15 % improvement in mechanical properties when compared to unfilled PEI. The thermal decomposition kinetics of PEI/MWCNT nano composites has been critically analyzed by using Coats – Redfern model. The increase in activation energy for thermal degradation by 699 kJ /mol for 2 wt% MWCNT implies improvement in the thermal properties of PEI. Studies under Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) depict significant interfacial adhesion with uniform dispersion of MWCNT in polymer matrix due to surface functionalization. 0.5 wt% chemically modified MWCNT shows typical alignment of MWCNT. There is a significant improvement in mechanical properties and thermal properties for surface functionalized MWCNT reinforced. More »»

A. Jayakrishnan, Kavitha, D., Arthi, A., Nagarajan, N., and Dr. Meera Balachandran, “Simulation of electric field distribution in nanodielectrics based on XLPE”, Materials Today: Proceedings, vol. 3, no. 6, pp. 2381-2386, 2016.[Abstract]


Recently, there has been a growing interest in the use of nano-sized fillers in order to enhance the properties of a material. The mechanical, barrier and electrical properties of polymers can be enhanced by use of nanofillers in appropriate amounts. The tremendous improvement in polymer properties on incorporation of nanoparticles arises from large interfacial area and large interfacial interaction between the nanofiller and the polymer matrix. There is several reported literature on the influence of nanofillers on dielectric properties of polymeric insulators, mainly epoxy resins. Literature on theoretical analysis for determining the influence of fillers and the dependence of its size, shape and composition on the electrical properties of the composite are limited. Cross linked polyethylene (XLPE) is widely used as insulation in underground high tension cables. The life of cables can be extended by delaying the breakdown of insulation. The breakdown of insulation depends on the distribution of electrical stress in insulation. The electric field and stress distribution in polymer insulation can be altered by adding nanoparticles, depending on permittivity of the nanofiller and its weight percentage in the polymer. This paper attempts to simulate the electric field distribution in XLPE and the effect of different kinds of nanofillers, namely nanoclay, nanosilica and nanoclacium carbonate on the same. Simulations were also performed in COMSOL Multiphysics software to evaluate the effect of nanofiller content on electrical field distribution in XLPE. It was found that the composite with the highest difference in the electric field values between the polymer and the nanofiller offers the best resistance against electric field propagation and that the dielectric properties of the nanocomposites become better with increased amount of nanofillers. However, at a very high weight percentage, the properties of the composite deteriorate due to the fact that for higher weight percentage the inter-particle distance reduces allowing for more agglomeration. The nano-filler with the highest difference is found to be nano-silica. More »»

Electrical treeing gets initiated from voids or impurities present in the volume of the solid insulating material where partial discharge occurs due to the enhanced stress. Breakdown of the insulation can be delayed if the insulation gives higher resistance to the propagation of the discharge in the form of an electrical tree. It is well understood from some of the reported experimental results that addition of nanoparticles improves the electrical properties of a base insulating material. The shape, size and percentage loading etc. of the nanoparticles play a good role in deciding the properties of the nanocomposites. Theoretical analysis for determining the influence of fillers and the dependence of its size, shape and composition on the electrical properties of the composite is limited in the literature. In this work, the electric field stress of different nanocomposites at different points in the matrix is found using Finite Element Method (FEM). From the determined stress, the propagation of electrical treeing is analysed for different nanocomposites and the properties of the fillers required for enhanced resistance to electrical treeing is identified

The article describes the properties of acrylonitrile butadiene copolymer (NBR)-nanocalcium carbonate (NCC) nanocomposites prepared by a two-step method. The amount of NCC was varied from 2 phr to 10 phr. Cure characteristics, mechanical properties, dynamic mechanical properties, thermal behavior, and transport properties of NBR-NCC composites were evaluated. For preparing NBR nanocomposites, a master batch of NBR and NCC was initially made using internal mixer. Neat NBR and the NBR-NCC masterbatch was compounded with other compounding ingredients on a two roll mill. NCC activated cure reaction upto 5 phr. The tensile strength increased with the nanofiller content, whereas NBR-NCC containing 7.5 phr exhibited the highest modulus. The storage modulus (E') increased up to 5 phr NCC loading; the reinforcing effect of NCC was seen in the increase of modulus which was more significant at temperatures above T g. The effect of nanofiller content and temperature on transport properties was evaluated. The solvent uptake decreased with NCC content. The mechanism of diffusion of solvent through the nanocomposites was found to be Fickian. Transport parameters like diffusion, sorption, and permeation constants were determined and found to decrease with nanofiller content, the minimum value being at 7.5 phr. Thermodynamic constants such as enthalpy and activation energy were also evaluated. The dependence of various properties on NCC was supported by morphological analysis using transmission electron microscopy. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

The morphology was investigated by X-ray diffraction and transmission electron microscopy. The tensile strength, modulus (M100), and storage modulus (E′) increased up to 5-phr nanoclay content and thereafter showed a decline. The effect of temperature and frequency on E′ and loss tangent was also investigated. © 2011 The Author(s).
