Abstract Chopped carbon fiber (CCF), multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) were introduced to polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) via melt compounding. Fracture toughness and creep performance of these composites are presented. A constant volume concentration of 1 vol.% was used. Dispersion was evaluated on both micro- and nano-scales. Flexural modulus was also measured. Composite behavior was found to differ both between fillers and studied property; fracture toughness or… CONTINUE READING
