Numerical Modeling, Determination, and Characterization of Electrical Properties of Nanocomposites
A numerical model is presented for the determination of the electrical properties of carbon nanotube-based composites. The model incorporates several experimentally-based statistical distributions to account for the ...
A Numerical Resistor Network Model for the Determination of Electrical Properties of Nanocomposites
This thesis introduces a comprehensive numerical model for the determination of the electrical properties of carbon nanotube reinforced polymer composites. Procedures of this model are based on a new spanning network ...
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 ...
Processing and evaluation of a carbon fiber/epoxy composite reinforced in the interlaminar region with carbon nanotubes and nanofibers
This study demonstrates that introducing Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) and Vapor Grown Carbon Fibers (VGCFs) into the interlaminar region of a carbon fiber/epoxy composite can enhance the resistance to delamination of the material. ...
