DMA testing of vapor grown carbon nanofiber reinforced epoxy
Additional Document Info
The processing, structure and properties of the nanocomposites were studied. Specifically, the effect of vapor grown carbon nanofiber (VGNF) on the storage and loss moduli of epoxy resin was evaluated through a three-point bending test using a dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA). The results indicate an 18.5% increase in storage modulus and 35% increase in loss modulus with the addition of 1 wt. % VNGF to the epoxy.
