Title: Microfluidic spinning chemistry and 3D microfluidic printing
Abstract: Microfluidic spinning technology is an ideal microreactor platform for the production of anisotropic ordered microfibers. In virtue of the precise and controllable shape, size and composition of fibers, as well as the high efficiency of mass and heat transfer, and green reaction process, microfluidic spinning has attracted wide attention. Herein, we systematically introduced a series of applications of fluorescent hybrid heterogeneous fibers constructed by microfluidic spinning technology. We proposed a simple and rapid fiber spinning chemistry (FSC) strategy, and realized the large-scale production of morpho-controllable one-dimensional ordered nanofibers (array, Janus, bamboo), two-dimensional ordered photonic crystal films and three-dimensional ordered Janus microbeads. In addition, by combining microfluidic spining with microfluidic chips, multifunctional nanomaterials were constructed and their applications in microreactors, supercapacitors, wearable devices and biomaterials were realized, which laid a foundation for multifunctional micronano fibers via microfluidic spinning technology. Moreover, a series of living materials with biocatalytic function have been prepared by microfluidic 3D printing technology. This microfluidic 3D printing technology not only improves the specific surface area of living materials and mass transfer efficiency, but also enhances the biocatalytic effect of the whole living materials. microfluidic 3D printing technology can regulate the distribution of cells in space, providing a powerful tool for the study of microbial symbiosis.

Title: Study on characterization of interface parameters and crack propagation of composite laminates considering fiber laying direction
Abstract:Continuous carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites (CFRP) are commonly used in aircraft structure design. The interface stress is easy to cause interlaminar delamination, resulting in crack propagation and early failure of the structure. In this work, the influence of fiber laying direction and the fiber bridging behavior at the crack tip during delamination propagation are fully considered. The meso interface debonding of carbon fiber/ polymer system, the interface fracture and fatigue crack propagation behavior of composite two-phase materials are systematically studied. With the test methods and fracture mechanics methods, the interface failure behavior of fiber/ polymer interface and laminate are deeply evaluated.
Firstly, this work develops the micro-droplet virtual test method, analyzes the influence of component phase material parameters, geometric parameters and curing temperature on the interface strength, and finds the main controlling factors of debonding failure mode. In the numerical model, the flexibility of the free section of the fiber in the test process and the residual stress produced by high-temperature curing are considered. The stress transfer mechanism and failure mechanism of the interface between the reinforced fiber and the resin matrix in the process of droplet debonding are analyzed from three typical stages.
Secondly, considering the influence of local adjacent ply fiber direction, the characterization method of fiber laying direction related delamination fracture toughness is developed, and the fiber bridging behavior produced in delamination propagation and its contribution to fracture toughness are discussed. The mode I and mode II delamination specimens with six different ply interfaces were designed. The modified beam theory data reduction scheme is used to characterize the mode I fracture toughness of different ply interfaces. Based on the "Jump" phenomenon in the fracture process, the scattered points of R curve are filtered. The delamination failure mechanism of different local ply interfaces is analyzed. The mode II fracture toughness of different ply interfaces was characterized and compared by compliance method by NPC and PC experiments.
Thirdly, based on the cohesive zone model (CZM) of finite element method, the mode I fracture behavior of different ply interfaces is predicted by trilinear traction-separation criterion, and the effective interlaminar interface parameters are characterized, and the traction-separation relationship of mode II delamination interface is characterized by bilinear CZM, and the mode II delamination fracture process of different ply interfaces is reproduced in ABAQUS. The axial compression finite element model of rectangular laminates with circular embedded delamination is established. The deformation of the specimen surface is measured and the displacement field is reconstructed by using 3D-DIC, and the effectiveness of the proposed interface model is proved by comparing with the finite element results.

Title: Study on rare-earth stabilized metal oxides as anode materials
Abstract: Our team studied the electrochemical properties of new anode materials, especially the preparation of manganese-cobalt-nickel-based polymetal coordination polymers (CPs), explored the structures and lithium storage properties of lithium ionic batteries (Libs), the combination of CPs, metal oxides, and the influence of rare earth elements on lithium storage properties of the oxide composites. The following three conclusions are summarized: 1. Under the same conditions, different crystal structures have a great impact on electrochemical performance, relatively speaking, the higher capacity of complexes are with more stable structure; 2. Comparing with polymetallic coordination polymers of the same structure, the electrochemical properties of manganese-cobalt and nickel are different; 3. Cerium plays a stable role on the electrochemical properties of metal complexes, mainly inhibiting the decomposition of the complex structure and providing lithium ion transport channels to improve lithium storage performance.
