Mechanical Behavior Analysis of Carbon NanotubeBased Polymer Composites using Multiscale Modeling, Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology ; Naghdabadi, Reza (Supervisor) ; Rafii Tabar, Hashem (Supervisor) ; Bagheri, Reza (Supervisor)
Abstract
In this project, two multiscale modeling procedures have been implemented to study the mechanical behavior of SWCNT/polymer composites. First, a new threephase molecular structural mechanics/ finite element (MSM/FE) multiscale model has been introduced which consists of three components, i.e. a carbon nanotube, an interphase layer and outer polymer matrix. The nanotube is modeled at the atomistic scale using MSM, whereas the interphase layer and polymer matrix are analyzed by the FE method. Using this model, we have investigated the macroscopic material properties of nanocomposite with and without considering the interphase and compared the results with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations....
