Mechanical properties of unidirectional nanocomposites with non-uniformly/randomly staggered platelet distributionSubmitted by Zuoqi Zhang on Sat, 2010-09-18 06:55.
Unidirectional nanocomposite structures with parallel staggered platelet reinforcements are widely observed in natural biological materials. Our recent paper, published in J. Mech. Phys. Solids, is aimed at an investigation of the stiffness, strength, failure strain and energy storage capacity of a unidirectional nanocomposite with non-uniformly or randomly staggered platelet distribution.
