GARBACZ, Grzegorz  and  KYZIOł, Lesław. Application of metric entropy to determine properties of structural materials. Polímeros [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.4, e2019050.  Epub Apr 06, 2020. ISSN 1678-5169.

Composite materials have nowadays become a group of construction materials whose application in mechanical structure designing has been constantly increasing. There is therefore a real demand for an objective opinion on the mechanical properties of composites. According to the authors, determining those properties based on the recommended methods included in current standards requires objectivization. The difficulty is that those methods are usually based on the geometrical shape of stress curves in the strain function. The study proposes an new method of testing the mechanical properties of composites through analyzing the internal dynamics of measurement data based on uniaxial stretching tests. A tool in such an analysis is determining the Kolmogorov-Sinai metric entropy values of measurement data. Nine samples of composite materials having various compositions have been tested. In selecting these materials, the focus has been on the possibility of introducing composite recyclates as their structural components.

Keywords : designing materials; Kolmogorov-Sinai metric entropy; mechanical properties; recycling; stretching curve.
