Abstract:

With the support of ARO through Grant No. W911 NF-04-1-0244, the energy absorption behaviors of nanoporous materials are being investigated systematically. The significant achievements include 1 validating the concept of the use of nanoporous materials in energy absorption systems 2 identifying the optimum surface species 3 performed preliminary high-strain-rate experiment 4 developed systems based on viscous liquids such as glycerin, so that the beneficial internal friction effect and shear thickening effect can be maximized 5 identified suitable nanoporous materials 6 analyzed energy generation associated with infiltration of ionic liquids 7 applied the NMF liquids in honeycomb structures 8 analyzed the direct compression of nanoporous frameworks and 9 developed models to better understand the behaviors of pressurized nanofluids.
