Book Description :

This book, consisting of 21 articles, including three review papers, written by research groups of experts in the field, considers recent research on reinforced polymer composites. Most of them relate to the fiber-reinforced polymer composites, which are a real hot topic in the field. Depending on the reinforcing fiber nature, such composites are divided into synthetic and natural fiber-reinforced ones. Synthetic fibers, such as carbon, glass, or basalt, provide more stiffness, while natural fibers, such as jute, flax, bamboo, kenaf, and others, are inexpensive and biodegradable, making them environmentally friendly. To acquire the benefits of design flexibility and recycling possibilities, natural reinforcers can be hybridized with small amounts of synthetic fibers to make them more desirable for technical applications. Elaborated composites have great potential as structural materials in automotive, marine and aerospace application, as fire resistant concrete, in bridge systems, as mechanical gear pair, as biomedical materials for dentistry and orthopedic application and tissue engineering, as well as functional materials such as proton-exchange membranes, biodegradable superabsorbent resins and polymer electrolytes.

Book Description :

This dissertation presents the work conducted on two major projects: 1) a structurally integrated, continuous carbon fiber heating element based polymer composite system for the de-icing of wind turbine blades and 2) modeling and experimental verification of piezoresistivity of carbon nanotube/nanofiber based polymer nanocomposite strain sensors. First, icing events on wind turbine blades not only cause a stop in production, but can also lead to serious structural damage to the turbine itself and surrounding structures. This work proposes a structurally integrated, continuous carbon fiber heating element wind turbine blade de-icing system, including an environmental condition based control system for heating actuation. Next, a Monte Carlo based numerical simulation of electrical conduction through a carbon nanotube/nanofiber-polymer nanocomposite is presented. Carbon nanocomposites show great promise as structurally integrated, highly sensitive strain sensors due to their inherent piezoresistivity, but many mechanisms affecting their gauge factor, such as that of temperature, are not well understood. This dissertation presents modification made to an existing Monte Carlo simulation of nanocomposite resistivity, extending its functionality to predict piezoresistive properties dependent on composite temperature. The numerical model is verified with experimental results of carbon nanotube-epoxy nanocomposites under strain at varying sample temperatures.

Book Description :

Carbon nanofibers are useful additives for improving the performance of polymer matrix composites, but the performance has sometimes been hindered by limits encountered in composite processing. Historically, incorporating nanofibers and other nanoparticles into structural composites has required lengthy predispersion steps using specialty dispersion techniques. Also, filtration of the nanoparticles by larger reinforcements is a problem in resin transfer molding processes. A way to overcome the problems with nanoparticles is through the use of carbon nanofiber sheets. The sheet material eliminates predispersion and reagglomeration and allows nanoparticle insertion into prepeg materials in the same manner as with traditional reinforcement materials. Composites fabricated with carbon nanofiber sheets demonstrate multifunctional property enhancements without altering traditional composite manufacturing processes. This chapter discusses development of carbon nanofiber continuous sheet goods and their applications.
