Characterization of mechanical behaviour of TiO2 nanotube array

Xu, Yanan (2016) Characterization of mechanical behaviour of TiO2 nanotube array. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis presents a comprehensive investigation on mechanical behaviour of TiO2 nanotube arrays. Experimental investigation and numerical simulations have been carried out to understand the mechanical behaviour of single nanotube, micron-sized nanotube pillar and nanotube arrays. The deformation and failure mechanisms and their dependence on loading conditions are discussed. The outcomes of this work will be beneficial to future development of TiO2 nanotube arrays and other nanostructures.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
