In this work the effect of nanoclay, Cloisite 20B inclusion on the mechanical behavior of a woven-type glass fiber reinforced polymer composite was experimentally investigated. Specifically, the study examined the effect of nanoclay with various weight percentages on the tensile, compressive strengths, and modulus of elasticity of glass fiber reinforced polymers in both weft and warp directions. Results showed that depending on the warp and weft directions, the inclusion of nanoclay, Cloisite 20B, significantly improved the mechanical behavior of glass fiber reinforced polymers. A better understanding of nanoclay fillers and their contribution to mechanical behaviors can lead to better design of novel structural composites.

Abstract

In this work the effect of nanoclay, Cloisite 20B inclusion on the mechanical behavior of a woven-type glass fiber reinforced polymer composite was experimentally investigated. Specifically, the study examined the effect of nanoclay with various weight percentages on the tensile, compressive strengths, and modulus of elasticity of glass fiber reinforced polymers in both weft and warp directions. Results showed that depending on the warp and weft directions, the inclusion of nanoclay, Cloisite 20B, significantly improved the mechanical behavior of glass fiber reinforced polymers. A better understanding of nanoclay fillers and their contribution to mechanical behaviors can lead to better design of novel structural composites.
