Title: Understanding and Controlling Toughening Mechanisms in Nanotube Reinforced Ceramic Coatings

Abstract

Research in this program is designed to understand mechanical behavior, particularly fracture toughness, in ceramics that are reinforced with carbon nanotubes (CNTs). In the past four years, emphasis was placed on: Synthesizing and characterizing ceramic nanocomposite materials reinforced with both multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) and single wall nanotubes (SWNTs); and Implementation and analysis of in situ mechanical testing methods to better understand and engineer the critical CNT/ceramic interfaces.
