Stiffness, strength and interwall sliding in aligned and continuous multi-walled carbon nanotube/glass composite microcantilevers

Abstract:

Individual perfect multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) can exhibit exceptional properties, such as an elastic modulus of ∼1 TPa. However, integration of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in bulk ceramic composites has not yet resulted in the significant improvements in mechanical properties that such data suggest to be achievable. Composites with aligned and continuous CNTs and with high CNT volume fractions might be expected to maximise the improvements. We have produced aligned MWCNT preforms by chem...
