  author={Shaik A. K. Jeelani and E. P. T. White and Yuan-yuan Zhou},
In the present investigation, we have studied effect of inclusions size on mechanical properties of nanocomposite materials containing SC-15 epoxy resin and TiO2 particles. The size of particles varied from macro (0.02mm) to nano (5nm) scale. The particles were infused into the part A of SC-15 through sonic cavitations and then mixed with part B of SC-15 using a high speed mechanical agitator. The trapped air and reaction volatiles were removed from the reaction mixture using high vacuum. Three…
