Enhancement of mechanical properties of buckypapers/polyethylene composites by microwave irradiation
Publication date: 18 August 2018 Source:Composites Science and Technology, Volume 164 Author(s): Bo Qu, Dongxian Zhuo, Rui Wang, Lixin Wu, Xiuyan Cheng Buckypapers (BPs) were generally laid up interleaved with polyethylene (PE) films to form BPs/PE composites after hot press. However, the mechanical properties of BPs/PE composites as-prepared were not good enough owing to poor impregnation and weak interfacial interactions between the matrix and carbon nanotube (CNT). In this paper, controlled microwave radiation treatment was applied on the BPs/PE composites. It is found that the microwave irradiation can effectively imp...

Effect of threshold values on the combination of EMG time domain features: Surface versus intramuscular EMG
In this study, we investigate the effect of threshold selection on the classification for prosthetic use. Surface and intramuscular EMG were recorded concurrently from four forearm muscles on nine able-bodied subjects. Subjects were prompted to elicit comfortable and sustainable contractions corresponding to eight classes of motion. Four repetitions of three seconds were collected for each motion during medium level steady state contractions. The threshold for each feature was computed as a factor (R = 0:0.02:6) times the average root mean square of the baseline. For each threshold value, classification error was quant...
