Electric safety : practice and standards

AnnotationElectric strength engineering schooling characteristically covers security of the ability apparatus and platforms. Little realization, if any, is given to the protection of individuals. after they achieve specialist prestige, such a lot strength engineers will not be conversant in electrical questions of safety akin to practices governing web site works or grounding innovations of dwellings, hospitals, and factories.

1 10 100 Frequency [Hz] Figure 6. Elastic modulus of PU composites at room temperature, 10% static strain and 2% dynamic strain for frequency ranging from 0 to 100 Hz. In order to mechanically characterize the prepared samples, dynamic-mechanical test were carried out on both pure matrix and composites and what emerged was that all composites presented an elastic modulus lower than that of the PU matrix, especially for samples containing FCNTs. This could have arised from an inhibition of the curing process due to the presence of the pH10 external sheat.

After curing, composites showed different morphologies depending on both the amount and the nature of the used filler (Fig. 3). Surface of PU composites with pristine CNTs was rough, whereas for composites with FCNTs it appeared smooth and bright. This was probably due to a more effective compatibilization between filler and matrix resulting from the chemical functionalization. The use of a solvent, also, allowed a better dispersion of FCNTs into the matrix, as it is visible by comparing Figs. 3c and 3d.
