The effect of network topology on material properties in vinyl-ester/styrene thermoset polymers using molecular dynamics simulations and time–temperature superposition

The time–temperature superposition principle (TTSP) is a promising tool for filling the time-scale gap between molecular dynamics simulation and experiments in polymer systems. Here we propose a molecular dynamics approach to generate vinyl-ester (VE)/styrene (ST) thermoset modulus master curves that are comparable to experiments.

Formulation of a model resin system for benchmarking processing-property relationships in high-performance photo 3D printing applications

Abstract A well-defined resin system is needed to serve as a benchmark for 3D printing of high-performance composites.

Performance of Additive Manufactured Glass Fiber Laminates

The effect of resins’ toughness on composite interlaminar toughness Additive manufacturing (AM) offers excellent versatility over traditional composite

The effect of resin-rich layers on mechanical properties of 3D printed woven fiber-reinforced composites

Composites for aerospace and automotive industries trend towards maximizing fiber volume fraction. In such applications, the design criteria typically maximize material stiffness with little concern for strength, and elongation at break. However, several fiber-composite applications would benefit from improved strength, and elongation at break.
