The first normal stress difference (N1) behavior of polymer nanocomposites and liquid crystalline polymer (LCP) composites is a measure of elasticity and is affected by shear stress as a result of morphological alterations at the molecular and nanostructure levels. In this study, the steady shear rheological behaviors of polylactide (PLA) and nanographite platelet (NGP) bionanocomposites containing 1, 2, 3, and 5 wt% nanofiller were investigated. The shear rheological properties of glass fiber… CONTINUE READING
