By virtue of numerical simulation, Document [11] discusses mechanical properties and acoustic emission properties of coal rocks with different aspect ratios, which helps understand relations between compression failure mechanisms and precursory information about acoustic emission.
Among the topics are a numerical study of adsorption enhancement by nanoparticle-scale inhibitor, reusing byproduct alumina composite powder from a hydrogen production process, electrospun cellulose acetate fiber containing rubber extract, a solid state welding process for aerospace components, and a numerical study on uni-axial compression failure in brittle material with a single flaw.
Compression fractures involve failure of the anterior column in compression without injury to the middle column, whereas burst fractures result in compression failure of both the anterior and the middle column.
Compression failure in fibre reinforced composites is of much interest and is often a limiting factor in load application because of the lower compressive strength relative to tensile strength [14].
Any reinforcement ratio above this value leads to a primary concrete compression failure, while any reinforcement ratio below the balanced ratio indicates a rebar rupture failure.
