Abstract

The mechanical behavior of carbon nanotube reinforced polystyrene is modeled and tested. The elastic behavior is predicted using the Mori-Tanaka theory for randomly oriented short fiber composites. Simulation of the elastic behavior incorporates modeling the commercially available nanotubes using conventional fiber mechanics and finite element methods on a representative volume element consisting of the nanotube, the interface, and the surrounding matrix. Different strain rates, volume fraction of nanotubes in the polymer, and strain recovery of the composites are experimentally compared to unreinforced polystyrene in order to compare the effect the nanotubes have on the mechanical behavior of the composite material.
