عنوان مقاله [English]
The available analytical and finite element methods set the values of elastic modulus of nanocomposites more than the values obtained from the test. In this thesis, a new linear and continuous analysis method is used to determine the best and most similar value of elastic modulus for polymer nanocomposites to laboratory value is provided. For this purpose, the governing elasticity equations in polar coordinates have been solved for nanocomposite representative volume element (RVE) with shear-lag model by assuming perfect bond condition between CNT and matrix. Then, using the finite element modeling with Ansys software, elastic modulus of connectivity states of almost complete and half break between the two phases are calculated and finally the proposed new model that is modeling with spring in the states of almost complete connectivity and half break between the two phases are provided and elastic modulus is calculated. In this method, shear stress is also offering a new relationship between CNT and matrix areas that have been. To ensure the validity of the results of presented model to determine the elastic modulus, the obtained results are compared with laboratory method results of other researchers that in all cases the proposed elastic modulus is much closer to laboratory sample and finite element models and good agreement.
