Table 2 Elastic properties of CNT/epoxy laminated composites at different CNT volume fractions

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

Stacking sequence Volume fraction of CNT (%) Young’s modulus (GPa) Shear modulus (GPa) Poison’s ratio
