    The polymer matrix is formed during the curing cycle in which temporary or chemical bonding occurs between polymer chains. Thermoset polymers possess permanent crosslinking whereas thermoplastics undergo temporary intermolecular crosslinking. The intermolecular crosslinks are weak and lead to the entanglement of the polymer chains with dipole-dipole and London dispersion interactions between polymer segments. Thermoset and thermoplastic polymers have advantages and disadvantages to their use, but aeronautical composites are characteristically thermosetting polymer matrices. Possible thermosetting polymers include bismaleimides (BMI),13 benzoxazines,14 but epoxies15 are most commonly…

    2. Basic theories and principles 2.1 Chemical vapor deposition 2.1.1 Definition of chemical vapor deposition Chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a versatile process which is widely applied to produce coatings, powders, fibers and monolithic components [1]. Applying the chemical vapor deposition, it is possible to produce alloy and compounds of metals and nonmetal materials. Chemical vapor deposition can be defined as the deposition of a solid on a heated surface from a chemical reaction in the…

    Introduction 1.1 Polyurethane polyurethanes were first developed by Otto Bayer and coworkers in 1937. Shortly thereafter, Schollenberger and coworkers used formula modification to prepare elastomeric polyurethane products from Bayer's products that were like nylon or other engineering plastics in physical characteristics. PUs are widely used in coatings, flexible and rigid foams, elastomers, and composites. Reasons for the use of polyurethane coatings include: high performance characteristics…

    and recovery properties. 4.2.2.6. Resistance to Water, Oil & Grease: Polyurethane's material properties will remain stable (with minimal swelling) in water / oil / grease. Polyether compounds will last many years in subsea applications. 4.2.2.7. Wide Resiliency Range: Resilience is generally a function of hardness. For shock-absorbing elastomer applications, low rebound compounds are usually used i.e. resilience range of 10-40%. For high frequency vibrations or where quick recovery is required,…

    Egg Drop Project For my egg drop project, at first I planned to do a triangle shape around the egg with straws and tape the straws together. Then I changed my project to a square like shaped with enough flexibility to squeeze the egg into it. I used straws because it would “soften” the fall. I also used a parachute to make it a smoother fall. After I completely figured out what I was doing I started building. I hot glued two straws against one straw until I had a square. After I…
