Nanoscale origins of spider dragline mechanical properties

Abstract:

Several mechanical models, in which a material is treated as a composite of crystalline and amorphous and/or interphase material, were used to predict the tensile modulus of spider dragline along the fiber direction. The models included the Voigt average (which assumes that the fibers/crystals are continuous, and that the strain is the same in all components of the composite); a modified Halpin-Tsai model (which is suitable for predicting the longitudinal elastic modulus for short aligned fib...
