Page no:01-08


The primary goal of this review paper is to investigate the mechanical properties of various sisal fiber-reinforced composites made of polypropylene (PP), epoxy, polystyrene (PS), polyethylene (PE), urea-formaldehyde (UF), and polyester as matrix materials. Depending on the matrix employed, sisal fibers are exposed to various fiber treatments in these composites. These treated composites’ mechanical properties are compared to untreated sisal fiber-reinforced composites. Compared to untreated sisal fiber-reinforced composites, these treated ones have improved mechanical qualities such as impact strength, flexural strength, density, and various other parameters. Finally, the current study’s results are drawn.

The Non-Uniform Scaling Method for Developing Boolean Set Blends with an Individual Blending Range Parameter for Each Primitive to Adjust its Subsequent Blend in Soft Object Modeling

In implicit surface modeling, soft object modeling is getting attraction because it has lower computing complexity of union blends. However, existing set blends for soft objects always behaves like a pure union or intersection, Max() or Min() function, in non-blending regions for blending range control. As a result, when they are reused as a new primitive in other blends, their primitives always have similar subsequent blending surfaces with primitives in the later blends. To solve the problem, this paper proposes the non-uniform scaling method. This method is a generalized method that can transform an existing union blend to a new union or intersection blend and additionally provide each primitive an individual subsequent blending range parameter for adjusting the blending range and size of each primitive’s subsequent blends. Thus, primitives of new blends are allowed to have different subsequent blending surfaces in later blends. Besides, through the proposed method, new two and high dimensional super-ellipsoidal union and intersection blends are also developed for soft object modeling.
