Evaluation of self-healing in cementitious materials with superabsorbent polymers through ultrasonic mapping Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The maintenance and repair of concrete infrastructure covers an increasing portion of the annual construction budget. For this reason, self-healing cementitious materials have been investigated thoroughly in literature. One way to achieve an effective self-healing composite is by promoting their inherent repair ability through the inclusion of superabsorbent polymers (SAPs). Thanks to their large absorption capacity upon contact with water, ...

INVESTIGATING THE EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT CRACK SHARPENING METHODS ON THE MODE I AND MODE II FRACTURE TESTS OF AN EPOXY RESIN Vrije Universiteit Brussel
FRACTURE OF STRUCTURAL ADHESIVE UNDER PURE MODE III LOADING CONDITIONS: EXPERIMENTAL STUDY AND CHALLENGES Vrije Universiteit Brussel
TEMPERATURE DISTRIBUTION DETERMINATION OF THERMOPLASTIC COMPOSITES SAMPLES IN BIAS EXTENSION TESTS USING A DIGITAL TWIN Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Electrospinning of poly(decamethylene terephthalate) to support vascular graft applications Vrije Universiteit Brussel
gained increasing interest since it was reported to exhibit enhanced endothelial cell adhesion and viability
compared to other poly(alkylene terephthalate) (PAT) analogues. Enhanced endothelial cell interactivity is of
particular interest when targeting cardiovascular applications, more specifically, for creating synthetic ...
Effect of extrusion and fused filament fabrication processing parameters of recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate) on the crystallinity and mechanical properties Vrije Universiteit Brussel Universiteit Gent
BEM evaluation of surface octahedral strains and internal strain gradients in 3D-printed scaffolds used for bone tissue regeneration Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Most of the mechnoregulatory computational models appearing so far in tissue engineering for bone healing predictions, utilize as regulators for cell differentiation mainly the octahedral volume strains and the interstitial fluid velocity calculated at any point of the fractured bone area and controlled by empirical constants concerning these two parameters. Other stimuli like the electrical and chemical signaling of bone constituents are ...
