Table 1 Properties of fibres and matrix materials [5, 13]

From: Comparative study of elastic properties and mode I fracture energy of carbon nanotube/epoxy and carbon fibre/epoxy laminated composites

Materials Young’s modulus (GPa) Poison’s ratio
Singe walled carbon nanotube 1000 0.28
Carbon fibre 230 0.20
Epoxy 3.89 0.37
