Mechanical properties of multi-walled carbon nanotube/epoxy composites
TypeArticles dans des revues avec comité de lecture
Untreated and acid-treated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNT) were used to fabricate MWNT/epoxy composite samples by sonication technique. The effect of MWNT addition and their surface modification on the mechanical properties were investigated. Modified Halpin-Tasi equation was used to evaluate the Young's modulus and tensile strength of the MWNT/epoxy composite samples by the incorporation of an orientation as well as an exponential shape factor in the equation. There was a good correlation between the experimentally obtained Young's modulus and tensile strength values and the modified Halpin-Tsai theory. The fracture surfaces of MWNT/epoxy composite samples were analyzed by scanning electron microscope.
