Abstract:

This STTR Phase I project will focus on fabricating 3-D multi-scale macro/nanocomposites with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) integrated in carbon fiber preforms. The incorporation of nanoscale CNTs and conventional micro-scale carbon fibers into the polymer matrix will lead to a hierarchy of the reinforcement scales, ranging from a single fiber surrounded by a nanocomposite sheath to a bundle of fibers with inter-fiber nanoscale reinforcement, and a laminated or textile fibrous composite with nanoscale reinforcement bridging into the matrix-rich regions. The microstructure and performance of the composites will be characterized and analyzed. Process-structure-property relations for the composites will be established and feedback to improve the CNT deposition processes and also to understand the relation between the 3-D nano-structure and composite properties.
