Mechanical behavior of mycelium-based particulate composites

We study the mechanical behavior of mycelium composites reinforced with biodegradable agro-waste particles. In the composite, the mycelium acts as a supportive matrix which binds reinforcing particles within its filamentous network structure. The compressive behavior of mycelium composites is investigated using an integrated experimental and computational approach.

The Faculty of Engineering, International Islamic University Malaysia is organizing this International Conference to bring together researchers and engineering professionals from all over the globe to meet and deliberate in the beautiful green city of Kuala Lumpur.

Mechanical properties of unidirectional nanocomposites with non-uniformly/randomly staggered platelet distribution

Unidirectional nanocomposite structures with parallel staggered platelet reinforcements are widely observed in natural biological materials. Our recent paper, published in J. Mech. Phys. Solids, is aimed at an investigation of the stiffness, strength, failure strain and energy storage capacity of a unidirectional nanocomposite with non-uniformly or randomly staggered platelet distribution.
