Mechanical properties of nanocomposites consisting of epoxy matrix reinforced with randomly oriented graphite platelets were studied by the Mori–Tanaka approach in conjunction with molecular mechanics. Elastic constants of graphite nanoplatelets, which are the inclusion phase in the micromechanical model, were calculated based on their molecular force field. The calculated elastic constants compared well with both experimental data and other published theoretical predictions. The results of the… CONTINUE READING
