We investigated the effect of carbon nanotube (CNT) modifications on the flexural and wear behaviors of multiscale carbon/CNT/epoxy composites in this study. Carbon/epoxy woven composites and two types of multiscale carbon/CNT/epoxy composites were fabricated by incorporating woven-type carbon fibers into epoxy matrices modified with 2 wt% acid-treated and silane-treated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs). Three-point bending and ball-on-disk wear tests were performed on the three… CONTINUE READING
