Nomination text:
Finite element (FE) analysis is used to study the incorporation of graphene into polymer composites. The effects of aspect ratio, cluser size, wrinkling in the sheets and ordering of the sheets in the polymer matrix on the mechanical performance of graphene nanocomposites is discussed. Debonding, crack deflection, crack pinning and crack pinning are toughening mechanisms observed for randomly oriented graphene sheets dispersed in polymer composites.
