Abstract:
In the present investigation, we have studied effect of inclusions size on mechanical properties of nanocomposite materials containing SC-15 epoxy resin and TiO2 particles. Micro sized particles have little effect on modulus and strength of epoxy at low loading. The modulus and strength increased as the size of particles decreased to nano scale. Results also show that 1.0wt% nanoparticles reinforced system exhibit the highest mechanical performance.
