Graphene is a material of excellent mechanical properties, which make it an ideal fiber for reinforcing metal. Since iron is the most used metal in the world, reinforcing iron with graphene can reduce the overall requirement of material in any application where strength is demanded. However, the effect of graphene reinforcement on the mechanical properties of iron needs to be known before the industrial application of the composite. In this paper, we have investigated the mechanical properties…

Graphene Surface Reinforcement of Iron

The findings of this study show that graphene can enhance the critical yield strength, hardness and elastic modulus of the composite to different degrees with the change of the number of graphene layers, and it is revealed that high temperature could weaken the elastic bearing capacity of the graphene, resulting in a decrease on the elastic mechanical properties ofThe graphene/Fe composite.

Interaction of Edge Dislocations with Graphene Nanosheets in Graphene/Fe Composites

Graphene is an ideal reinforcement material for metal-matrix composites owing to its exceptional mechanical properties. However, as a 2D layered material, graphene shows highly anisotropic behavior,
