12 American Ceramic Society Bulletin, Vol. 85, No. 7 Nanotube `Sandwiches' Could
 

Summary: 12 American Ceramic Society Bulletin, Vol. 85, No. 7
Nanotube `Sandwiches' Could
Lead to Better Composites
Reinforced composite fabrics made
from woven ceramic fibers have been
used for decades in structural applica-
tions, but tend to perform poorly in
terms of "through-thickness," or the
ability of a material to respond to forces
applied perpendicular to the fabric-
stacking direction.
Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute (Troy, N.Y.) and the
University of Hawaii (Manoa) have
pioneered a process to help overcome
these difficulties. Recently, they demon-
strated that through-thickness proper-
ties can be improved by adding nano-
tube Velcro-like structures between the
layers.
