Book Description :

He addition of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in polymers to form conductive composites has been attracting great interest from research and industry communities due to their potential applications. Experiments and simulations have demonstrated that the addition of a very small amount of CNTs into polymers can significantly improve the electrical conductivity of the composites. Such significant improvement in the electrical conductivity is attributed to two conductivity mechanisms: nanoscale electron hopping and microscale conductive networks. Understanding and prediction of the overall electrical conductivity of the composites with the incorporation of the conductivity mechanisms that underpin the macroscopic electrical properties are essential for their engineering applications. One of the most promising applications of the conductive composites is for stretchable electronics. For such an application, it is naturally necessary to investigate the stretching effects upon the overall electrical conductivity of the composites. Furthermore, CNTs dispersed in polymers are usually not straight but rather have a certain degree of waviness due to the CNTs' large aspect ratio and low bending stiffness. It has been suggested that the waviness can have considerable effect on the electrical conductivity of the composites. Therefore, the investigation of CNT waviness effect is of great importance for the prediction of the overall electrical conductivity of the composites. In this thesis, based on the micromechanics theory, a mixed micromechanics model with the incorporation of the nanoscale electron hopping and the microscale conductive networks is first developed to predict the electrical conductivity of the composites. The modeling results agree well with existing experimental data. It is found that both the electron hopping and the conductive networks contribute to the electrical conductivity of the composites while conductive networks become dominant to the electrical conductivity of the composites after percolation. It was also indicated that the sizes of CNTs have significant effects on the percolation threshold and the overall electrical conductivity of the nanocomposites. Based on the developed micromechanics model, stretching effects are then investigated by incorporating the stretching induced changes into the micromechanics model. The investigation found that the stretching, including uni-axial and bi-axial stretching, decreases the electrical conductivity of the composites in the stretching direction and the decrease is more evident for the bi-axial stretching compared to uni-axial stretching. It is also observed that the electrical conductivity is more sensitive to stretching for the composites with lower CNT volume fraction. Finally, we studied the CNT waviness effects upon the electrical conductivity of the composites under a uni-axial stretching. It is demonstrated that the waviness significantly decreases the electrical conductivity of the composites and the electrical conductivity is more sensitive to the waviness for the composites with lower CNT volume fraction and larger stretching strain. Reasons for the observed variations and phenomena are interpreted. The work in this thesis is expected to obtain increased understanding on the overall electrical conductivity of CNT-polymer composites from the theoretical perspective and provide useful guidelines for the design and optimization of the composites.

Micro and Nano Fibrillar Composites (MFCs and NFCs) from Polymer Blends is a comprehensive reference for researchers, students and scientists working in the field of plastics recycling and composites. The book aims to determine the influence of micro and nanofibrillar morphology on the properties of immiscible blend systems. Chapters cover micro and nanofibrillar composites based on polyolefin, liquid crystal polymer, biodegradable polymers, polyester and polyamide blends in various industrial application fields. The book brings together panels of highly-accomplished experts in the field of plastics recycling, blends and composites systems. For several decades, plastic technology has played an important role in many industrial applications, such as packaging, automobiles, aerospace and construction. However the increasing use of plastics creates a lot of waste. This has led to restrictions on the use of some plastics for certain applications and a drive towards recycling of plastics. More recently, microfibrillar in-situ composites have been prepared from waste plastics such as PET/PP, PET/PE and Nylon/PP as a way of formulating new high performance polymer systems. This book tackles these issues and more, and is an ideal resource for anyone interested in polymer blends.

Book Description :

This volume enables readers to interpret and predict the effective mechanical properties of existing and emerging composites through modeling and design. The book addresses that materials and structures with small-scale dimensions do not behave in the same manner as their bulk counterparts. Once the dimensions of the materials are reduced to the micron and sub-micron range, their properties are subject to significant change. Thus, mechanical properties will be varied and will depend on the sample size. In the meantime, due to the large surface-to-volume ration of small structures, deformation mechanisms are subject to change. This volume integrates various approaches in micromechanics and nanomechanics into a unified mathematical framework, complete with coverage of both linear and nonlinear behaviors. It weaves together the basic concepts, mathematical fundamentals, and formulations of micromechanics and nanomechanics into a systemic approach for understanding and modeling the effective material behavior of composite materials. While providing information on recent developments in the mathematical framework of micro- and nanomechanics, the volume addresses highly localized phenomena and a number of interesting applications. It also illustrates application of micromechanical and nanomechanical theory to design novel engineering materials.

Book Description :

In this research notes book, the modelling of mechanical properties of CNT/polymer nanocomposites is presented. The book begins with the structural and intrinsic mechanical properties of CNTs and then introduces computational methods that have been applied to polymer nanocomposites, covering from molecular scale (molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo), microscale (Brownian dynamics, dissipative particle dynamics, lattice Boltzmann, time-dependent Ginzburg–Landau method, dynamic density functional theory method) to mesoscale and macroscale (micromechanics, equivalent-continuum and self-similar approaches, finite element method). Knowledge of the nature and mechanics of the length and orientation of nanotubes, and load transfer between nanotubes and polymers, is critical for the manufacturing of enhanced carbon nanotube polymer composites. It also enables the tailoring of the interface for specific applications or superior mechanical properties. This book discusses the state of these parameters in mechanics of carbon nanotube polymer composites and presents some directions for future research in this field. The book’s aim is to enhance current knowledge in this area to support researchers in carbon nanotubes and help them choose the appropriate modelling tool for accomplishing their research.

Book Description :

This chapter describes the elastic qualities of advanced fibre-reinforced composites, in terms of characterization, measurement and prediction from the basic constituents, i.e. the fibre and matrix. The elastic analysis comprises applying micromechanics approaches to predict the lamina elastic properties from the basic constituents, and using classical lamination theory to predict the elastic properties of composite materials composed of several laminae stacked at different orientations. Examples are given to illustrate the theoretical analysis and give a full apprehension of its prediction capability. The last section provides an overview on identification methods for elastic proprieties based on full-field measurements. It is shown that these methodologies are very convenient for elastic characterization of anisotropic and heterogeneous materials.
