HOMOGENIZATION METHOD FOR 2-D NANOSTRUCTURE REINFORCED EPOXY
Conference contribution, 2018

Graphene  flakes  are  being  used  as base  resin additives  in  epoxy  to  improve  the  properties  of  the material   for   aerospace   applications[1].   The concentrations  of  the  flakes  should  be  optimized  to create material properties that meet the design and cost requirements   of   the   components.   A   predictive modelingapproach  is  needed  to  aid  in  the  design  of these  composite  materials  for  increased  stiffness. Using  a2D  representation, the mechanical  properties of  a  representative  area  element  of  epoxy  embedded with graphene flakes can be predicted.
