Research summary

Nano-composites are materials made up of two or more constituents where at least one is dispersed (or exhibits discrete features) at the nanometre length scale. This may produce an extremely high interfacial area density, which can result in the macroscopic material properties being radically different from those of the individual constituents, without a dramatic increase in structural mass. This applies to all physical properties including mechanical, optical, electromagnetic, etc.

The aim of this PhD project is to compare nano-reinforcement improvements in fracture toughness and impact resistance relative to other through thickness reinforcement techniques such as z-pinning, stitching, 3D-weaving, etc. Particular ...
