We can estimate the size of the interfibre spacing by examining these SEM images.
Altogether, these contribute to an appreciable reduction in the interfibre porosity of the mesh.
Although cross-linked alginate scaffolds exhibit better tensile properties than MgO reinforced alginate nanocomposite scaffolds, cross-linking reduces the interfibre porosity of the scaffolds (Section 3.2.1).
As reported previously , the zero-frequency resistance change of carbon fibre composites may be due to (a) dimensional change as a result of elastic deformation of fibres, (b) change of resistivity resulting from change in interfibre
contacts due to strain or change in fibre arrangements, and (d) fibre breakage.
The relationship of the no sliding interfibre
can be written at each connecting point as [??] = ([??] t) / [[??].sup.f] = [[??].sup.m] = [??].
In this process, most of the lignin, the interfibre
bonding matrix, is degraded and removed by cooking wood chips in a solution of sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfide (white liquor (WL)).
