... were observed on the fracture surface; they appear to be defects that intersect surface A and are indicated by the small white arrows in Fig. 1(d) . Fracture appears to emanate from these features. Stereomicroscope inspection at a magnification of 30× revealed whisker like projections within...

... ( Ref 31 , 32 ). The intrinsic mechanism would involve the creation of a fatigue-damaged microstructure ahead of the crack tip that would produce a crack-advance mechanism operating uniquely in cyclic fatigue. Possible mechanisms are alternating crack tip blunting and resharpening or, for whisker...

... for polymers with low thermal conductivity. Incorporation of reinforced particles into the polymer matrix can improve heat transfer and improve diffusion at the friction interface. The effects of introducing boron nitride (BN), zinc oxide (ZnO), and tetra-needle–shaped zinc oxide whiskers (T-ZnO) as well...

... reinforcement example, it is recognized that the use of inorganic fibers or whiskers or the various forms of carbon and organic fibers can provide better physical properties. Generally, adding reinforcement increases the stiffness of the plastic part. The greater the glass content, the greater the flexural...
