In recent years, the development of high performance Spectra® fibers has received increasing attention in industry. Because of the outstanding capability to absorb energy, these polyethylene fibers are frequently used in damage tolerant composite materials to protect equipment, apparatus, and/or people against blast and debris of explosion or projectiles. Since the fiber is thermally stable, it is possible to design composite structures that are suitable for use in applications where prolonged exposu…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
