[automatically translated] The CNTs excel in rigidity, tensile strength, impact strength, elongation at break, thermal conductivity and electrical conductivity. One way to take advantage of their unique properties is to embed them in a matrix to construct nanostructured composite materials. This article presents a new mixed model, numerical and analytical, allowing you to predict the elastic properties of nanocomposites with random distribution of the CNTs, taking into account the curvature that they show when they are immersed in the polymer. The hybrid approach is an appreciable evolution of micromechanical modeling and can be applied to any nanostructured composite.
