Abstract:Fiber-reinforced polymer composites are a popular alternative to traditional metal alloys. However, their internally occurring damage modes call for strategies to monitor these structures. Multi-walled carbon nanotube-based polyelectrolyte thin films were manufactured using a layer-by-layer deposition methodology. The thin films were applied directly to the surface of glass fiber-reinforced polymer composites, with the purpose of structural monitoring. This work focuses on characterizing the sensitivity of the…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
