Fracture Toughness of Carbon Nanotube-Reinforced Metal- and Ceramic-Matrix Composites

Hierarchical analysis of the fracture toughness enhancement of carbon nanotube- (CNT-) reinforced hard matrix composites is carried out on the basis of shear-lag theory and facture mechanics.

Large deformation elasticity and damping of individual carbon nanotubes in radial direction

Carbon nanotubes as strong fibers in CNT-composites are subjected to large deformations in radial direction. They provide strength as well as structural damping in the composite. Despite being strong in the axial direction, CNTs are rather soft in the radial direction.
