Low electrical resistivity carbon nanotube and polyethylene nanocomposites for aerospace and energy exploration applications
An investigation was conducted towards the development and optimization of low electrical resistivity carbon nanotube (CNT) and thermoplastic composites as potential materials for future wire and cable applications in ...
Key steps towards carbon nanotube-based conductors
Making a robust carbon nanotube-based conductor as a replacement of copper in electricity grids can initiate a paradigm shift in energy transmission. This dissertation identifies four fundamental factors for making carbon ...
Hybrid finite elements nanocomposite characterization by stochastic microstructuring
In this thesis the impact of entangled and non-straight fibers in the determination of the effective elastic and thermal properties of polymer nanocomposite (PNC) is addressed. Most of the models in recent studies assume ...
