Abstract
This study investigates the synergistic effects of graphene oxide (GO) on the woven carbon fiber (CF)-reinforced epoxy composites. The GO nanofiller was incorporated into the epoxy resin with variations in the content, and the CF/epoxy composites were manufactured using a vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding process and then cured at 70 and 120 °C. An analysis of the mechanical properties of the GO (0.2 wt.%)/CF/epoxy composites showed an improvement in the tensile strength, Young’s modulus, toughness, flexural strength and flexural modulus by ~ 34, 20, 83, 55 and 31%, respectively, when compared to the CF/epoxy composite. The dynamic mechanical analysis of the composites exhibited an enhancement of ~ 56, 114 and 22% in the storage modulus, loss modulus and damping capacity (tanδ), respectively, at its glass transition temperature. The fiber–matrix interaction was studied using a Cole–Cole plot analysis.

Dynamic mechanical and thermal analysis of oil palm empty fruit bunches (EFB)/jute fiber reinforced epoxy hybrid composites were carried out. The effect of layering pattern on dynamic mechanical properties (storage modulus (E’), loss modulus (E”), and tan δ) was investigated as a function of temperature. The storage modulus (E’) was found to be decreased with temperature in all cases, and hybrid composites had almost the same values of E’ at glass transition temperature (Tg). The tan δ peak heig...

Abstract The glass fabric composites filled with the particulates of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), micro-sized MoS 2 , nano-TiO 2 , and nano-CaCO 3 , respectively, were prepared by dip-coating of the glass fabric in a phenolic resin containing the particulates to be incorporated and the successive curing. The friction and wear behaviors of the resulting glass fabric composites sliding against AISI-1045 steel in a pin-on-disk configuration at various temperatures were evaluated on a Xuanwu-III ...

Abstract A ceramic matrix for carbon fiber-reinforced ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) has been developed from poly(methylsilsesquioxane)/silicon mixtures, using a low-cost process. In this process the space in two-dimensional carbon fiber preform was filled with a slurry composed by Si powder dispersed into poly(methylsilsesquioxane)/trietoxysilane solutions. Three different volume ratio of Si:polymer were used to stack eight-harness plain weave of carbon fiber, forming laminates composites, wh...

Abstract Surfactant has been successfully applied to enhance the dispersion of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in polymer and the properties of nanocomposite. CNTs were treated with a nonionic surfactant Triton X-100, and its effects on dispersion state, surface chemistry, structure and morphology of CNTs, as well as on the thermomechanical, mechanical and electrical properties of CNT/epoxy nanocomposites were evaluated. The mechanical properties such as impact fracture toughness, flexural strength and ...

The use of short palm tree lignocellulosic fibers as a reinforcing phase in polyester and epoxy matrices has been reported. The morphology and the mechanical properties of the resulting composites were characterized using scanning electron microscopy analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, dynamical mechanical analysis and three-point bending tests. It was shown that the interfacial adhesion was better in the case of epoxy-based composites. In order to improve interfacial adhesion the ester...

Abstract Carbon fiber reinforced epoxy composite laminates, with strategically incorporated fluorine functionalized carbon nanotubes (f-CNTs) at 0.2, 0.3 and 0.5 weight percent (wt.%), are studied for improvements in tensile strength and stiffness and durability under both tension–tension ( R = +0.1) and tension–compression ( R = −0.1) cyclic loadings, and then compared to the neat (0.0 wt.% CNTs) composite laminate material. To develop the nanocomposite laminates, a spraying technology was used...

Abstract Short-carbon-fiber/polypropylene composites (CF/PP composites) have high processability and recyclability but low strength. To improve the strength, various nanofillers were hybridized to form fiber-reinforced composites. Adding nanofillers improves not only the strength but also the elastic modulus, with the exception of clay nanofillers. To understand the strengthening mechanism resulting from the addition of nanofillers, the residual fiber length and interfacial shear strength were m...

Abstract Silane-functionalized graphene oxides (sGOs) were fabricated with four different self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) to reinforce an epoxy adhesive, with the aim of improving the bonding strength of carbon/epoxy composites. The oxygen-containing groups on the surface of graphene oxide (GO) were converted by the SAMs to amine, epoxy, or alkyl groups. The successful reaction between the silane molecules of the SAMs and functional groups of GO was evidenced by the results of different charact...

Abstract Carbon nanotubes have long been recognized as the stiffest and strongest man-made material known to date. In addition, their high electrical conductivity has roused interest in the area of electrical appliances and communication related applications. However, due to their miniscule size, the excellent properties of these nanostructures can only be exploited if they are homogeneously embedded into light-weight matrices as those offered by a whole series of engineering polymers. We review...

In recent years, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) grown on fibers have attracted a lot of interest as an additional reinforcing component in conventional fiber-reinforced composites to improve the properties of the fiber/matrix interface. Due to harsh growth conditions, the CNT-grafted fibers often exhibit degraded tensile properties. In the current study we explore an alternative approach to deliver CNTs to the fiber surface by dispersing CNTs in the fiber sizing formulation. This route takes advantage ...

Abstract In this work, the hybridization effects of hydrazine reduced graphene oxide (rGO) on the inter-laminar shear strength (ILSS), impact strength, and in-plane fracture toughness of symmetric type carbon fiber/epoxy composite (CF/epoxy) laminates were investigated. The composite laminates were fabricated through the vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM) process. At 0.2 wt% of rGO loading, the CF/epoxy composites showed the best load carrying capacity among the developed laminates. ...

Abstract The synergistic effects of polyethyleneimine functionalized graphene oxide (PEI-FGO) on the static and dynamic mechanical properties of the carbon fibre reinforced epoxy composites were investigated in detail. The functional groups of PEI-FGO, especially the NH 2 , experienced strong molecular interaction with the epoxy resin, and increased the load carrying capacity of the matrix, and the corresponding overall mechanical strength of the composites. The tensile and flexural strength of ...

The surge of knowledge among researchers pertaining to the excellent properties of graphene has led to the utilisation of graphene as a reinforced filler in polymer composites. Different methods of graphene preparation, either bottom-up or top-down methods, are important requirements of starting materials in producing reinforced properties in the composites. The starting graphene material produced is either further functionalised or directly used as a filler in thermoset polymer matrixes. An eff...
