Abstract
An investigation is carried out to determine the potential of a fracture mechanics approach to the toughness of PE/PEgMAH/PA multilayer films, by use of the Essential Work of Fracture method (EWF). The films were modified by either blending EVA in the PE

Abstract
Details are given of a novel superabsorbent composite system based on carboxymethyl cellulose, prepared by graft copolymerisation of acrylic acid in the presence of kaolin powder. Methylenebisacrylamide was used as a crosslinking agent and ammonium persul

Abstract
A superabsorbent hybrid material was prepared by intercalated polymerisation of sodium acrylate and bentonite, with sugar as the crosslinking agent, and potassium persulphate as the initiator. Factors affecting the water absorbency were studied by orthogo

Abstract
Glass fibre-reinforced plastic dowels are tested as replacements for steel dowels traditionally used in jointed concrete roads, in an effort to provide a maintenance-free alternative, thereby reducing the lifetime costs of the road structure. A study was

Abstract
In this work, titanium alkoxide was incorporated into a polyamic acid of pyromellitic dianhydride/oxydianiline, to fabricate a titania/polyimide composite film. The effect of titania content on the refractive index was investigated. Refractive index dispe
