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. ...
