Abstract

This project aims at determining both numerical and experimental to some thermal properties and its thermal expansion coefficient, thermal conductivity and mechanical properties of reinforcement of fiber glass woven with matrix of multi wall carbon nanotube MWCNT / epoxy composite. First, this powder is known to have a very good thermal properties. So, the nanopartical combined with resin has poor thermal properties. Secondly, the development a complete solution for the manufacturing of multi wall carbon nanotube /epoxy composites different volume fraction from 1% to 10% with increment of 2% to compare the result of finite element method by using ANSYS program with experimental results to determine the mechanical and thermal properties for nanocomposite materials. The finite element by using ANSYS is good agreement with experimental data for different volume fraction. The thermal conductivity of the nanocomposite materials increases with increasing in the volume fraction concentration thermal expansion coefficient reduces with increasing in the volume fraction concentrations. The increment nano particle concentration effect on the mechanical properties is accomplished the best results.
