Title (EN) METHODS OF SELF-STRESSING ENGINEERED COMPOSITE MATERIALS, AND SELF-STRESSING REINFORCEMENT FOR SAME
(FR) PROCÉDÉS D'AUTO-CONTRAINTE DE MATÉRIAUX COMPOSITES D'INGÉNIERIE, ET RENFORCEMENT DE CEUX-CI PAR AUTO-CONTRAINTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Self-stressing engineered composites that include a matrix containing self-stressing reinforcement that is activated by an activator that causes, in situ, the self-stressing reinforcement to transfer at least some of its pre-stress into portions of the matrix adjacent the self-stressing reinforcement. In some embodiments, the activator can be of a self-activating, an internal activating, and/or an external activating type. In some embodiments, the self- stressing reinforcement includes an active component that holds and transfers pre-stress to a matrix and a releasing component that causes the active component to transfer its pre-stress to the matrix. In some embodiments, the self-stressing reinforcement is initially unstressed and becomes stressed upon activation. Various engineered composites, self-stressing reinforcement, and applications of self-stressing engineered composites are disclosed.
(FR)L'invention concerne l'auto-contrainte de composites d'ingénierie qui comprennent une matrice contenant un renforcement par auto-contrainte qui est activé par un activateur qui provoque, in situ, le transfert par le renforcement par auto-contrainte d'au moins une partie de sa pré-contrainte dans des parties de la matrice adjacentes au renforcement par auto-contrainte. Dans certains modes de réalisation, l'activateur peut être d'un type à auto-activation, à activation interne, et/ou à activation externe. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le renforcement par auto-contrainte comprend un composant actif qui maintient et transfère la précontrainte à un composant de matrice et à un composant de libération qui amène le composant actif à transférer sa pré-contrainte à la matrice. Dans certains modes de réalisation, le renforcement par auto-contrainte est initialement sans contrainte et la contrainte est appliquée lors de l'activation. Divers composites d'ingénierie, un renforcement par auto-contrainte, et des applications de composites d'ingénierie à auto-contrainte sont divulgués.
