Abstract

© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. The focus of the present study is on energy absorption capability (EA ) of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) dispersed in thermoset epoxy resin under compressive high strain rate loading. Toward this objective, high strain rate compressive behavior of multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) dispersed epoxy is investigated using a split Hopkinson pressure bar. The amount of MWCNT dispersion is varied up to 3% by weight. Calculation methodology for the evaluation of E A of individual CNTs and CNTs dispersed in resins/composites is presented. Quantitative data on E A of individual CNTs and CNTs dispersed in resins under quasi-static and high strain rate loading is given.
