Characterization of Carbon Nanotube Doped Carbon Fiber Polymer Composites
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Aeronautical industry is interested in using damage tolerant, high strength and lightweight materials in the manufacture of some structural components that must attend tight requirements. Carbon nanotubes doped multiscale composites are good new generation material candidates to improve aeronautical grade composites. This project includes comprehensive characterization studies of electrophoretic deposition treated carbon nanotubes doped carbon fiber polymer composites with different stacking sequences. For comparison purposes, spray-on treated carbon nanotubes doped carbon fiber composites and non-doped reference composites with different stacking sequence are also studied. The goal of the project is to verify the link between the effects of carbon nanotubes addition, micro-nanostructure and macro material properties. To achieve this goal, several thermal loading damage analyses and investigations on micron and sub-micron scale were performed. In this thesis, the readers will be able to find the necessary theoretical background information, experimental procedure, results and conclusions gained throughout this project.
