Abstract

The effects of nanoparticles on impact stiffness and strength are investigated. Nanoparticles are prepared from nanoclay particles embedded into carbon fiber/epoxy wet lay-up laminates. Specimens are characterized via low-velocity impact tests and following Cscanner damage analyses. The results show that the area of damage is reduced 46% when 5% nanoparticle is used in the composite. Modeling of the nanocomposites is performed by peridynamic simulations and compared with experimental measurements. The mode of damage and the improvement of the impact resistance of nanocomposites are captured successfully via numerical simulations.
