Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Analytical and numerical formulations and simulations are presented in order to conduct sensitivity studies of physical parameters affecting thermal stress controlofviscoelastic structures during cure through designer materials tailored to alleviate or outright eliminate undesirable thermal stress states. Numerical simulations in terms of critical parameters are carried out to evaluate system responses.
