USAGE OF NANO COMPOSITE AS FILLER MATERIAL IN AEROSPACE COMPOSITE MATERIALS
The application of nanotechnology in engineering materials is used to enhance the mechanical & physical properties. In recent days many fillers are used to increase the tensile, flexural, hardness, impact strength, etc. The prime objective of this project is to enhance the mechanical properties of the laminate composite by adding Nanoparticles under various environmental conditions. The Titanium dioxide (TiO2), Silicon dioxide (SiO2), Aluminium oxide (Al2O3) are prepared by using Solgel process by using suitable Precursor. The synthesized Particles used separately in different proportions as fillers with matrix mixers. From previous studies the filler materials as nanoparticles will increase the strength of the matrix. In order to fabricate the composite material by using Glass fiber as reinforcement and Epoxy as matrix material. Thus the bond between the interface of matrix and the reinforcement (glass fiber) increases due to the addition of nanoparticles.
