Abstract
  The present paper considers the devise and development of a novel theory to examine the flexure analysis of exponentially graded plates exposed to thermal and mechanical loads. The properties such as Elastic moduli and thermal moduli are assumed to vary exponentially along the thickness by keeping the ...  Read More

Abstract
  This paper presents the results of mechanical strength of wet and dry zirconia/ Nafion® nano-composite membrane. The tensile tests were conducted to determine elastic modulus and stiffness of dry and wet pristine Nafion® membrane and modified Nafion® membrane. The composite membranes were ...  Read More
