Abstract :

This research investigates the reinforcement effects obtained by inducing Carbon Fibers (CF’s) and Multi Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT’s) at micro and nano level in a polymer based matrix. Percentage composition of the fillers were varied in three different proportions that is 0.15, 0.5, 0.75% by weight of polymer matrix, these compositions were varied in order to check the best efficacy of reinforcement proportion for optimum results. Homogeneous and uniform distribution of nanoparticles in the holding matrix was achieved with the help of Ultrasonicator. The specimens casted as per ASTM standards were tested for mechanical properties like Load deflection criteria, tensile strength. The test results of reinforced specimens were compared with a controlled specimen, to determine the changes obtained because of the reinforcement phase. Spectroscopic analysis was performed using Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FESEM) to identify the nanofillers interaction with the holding matrix such as dispersion, tailoring of different layers of polymers etc. Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) was conducted as an elemental analysis to know the chemical composition of the specimens and their effects. Specimen containing CF’s and MWCNTs with 0.15% composition showed optimum results in terms of Ultimate load carrying capacity and tensile strength as compared to a plain epoxy.
