Abstract:Alignment of CNTs in the polymer matrix is important from a material property improvement stand point. Therefore, a microstructure-based finite element machining model was used to study the effect of CNT orientation on the machining responses. The predicted machining responses for aligned CNT composites point to the influence of the CNT-polymer interface, CNT orientation (with respect to the cutting direction), and CNT dispersion on the failure mechanisms observed during machining.
