Characterization, Modeling and Prediction of the Creep Resistance of Polymer Nanocomposites

The primary target of this work was to study the long-term performance of polymer-based nanocomposites. Systematic experiments were carried out for the first time to explore the effects of nanofillers (including different size nanoparticles, nanoclay, and carbon nanotubes with different aspect ratios) on the creep behavior of polymers at various temperatures and load levels. In addition, modeling work including viscoelastic and empirical methods was applied to deeply understand and predict their creep performance. In general, among the nanofillers observed in this study, high aspect ratio carbon nanotubes showed best reinforcing efficiency in terms of enhanced dimensional stability and extended service life, and then nanoclay and small nanoparticles, and large nanoparticles demonstrated least benefit. Both the experimental and modeling results give a basic and important reference of nanocomposites for the purpose of industrial long-term design and application.
