Effect of Carbon Nanotube on Thermo-Mechanical Properties of Glass Fiber/Epoxy Laminated Nanocomposites
      Shubham Gupta and Ariful Rahaman
Abstract: Nanocomposites has emerged, penetrated and conquered the market over the past years due to its wide range of applications. The processing of nanocomposites is one of the fastest growing areas in materials research due to the potential of significantly changing material properties even at low nanomaterial concentrations. The thermo-mechanical behaviors were investigated experimentally for two systems of glass fiber reinforced epoxy composites: with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and without CNTs. An experimental campaign which involves 4 layers laminates were conducted in this study. A manufacturing process using hand lay-up technique followed by hot pressing techniques was used to produce glass fiber-reinforced laminates with the epoxy matrix and with the CNT based epoxy matrix. The surface characterization and thermo-mechanical behavior of the glass fiber-epoxy system and glass fiber-CNT/epoxy system was characterized through Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) and Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA).
