Development of Fiber-Reinforced-Polymeric Composites Strengthened with Functionalized Carbon Nanotubes

Fiber-reinforced polymeric composites that are a combination of high strength micron-sized fibers and a polymeric material and that possess unique properties of both components are great engineering materials, which are utilized in a wide variety of application areas including aerospace, transportation, construction, and marine goods. This research project focuses on the development of advanced fiber-reinforced polymeric composites containing chemically functionalized carbon nanotubes. For this purpose, interfacial interactions between polymer and fiber that have an important role in fiber-reinforced polymeric composite structures will be tailored with chemically functionalized carbon nanotubes by using novel methods for the improvement of the mechanical performance of these composite materials.
