Table 3 Elastic properties of CF/epoxy laminated composite at 60% CF volume fraction

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 CF (%) Young’s modulus (GPa) Shear modulus (GPa) Poison’s ratio
\(E_{x}\) \(E_{y}\) \(E_{z}\) \(G_{xy}\) \(G_{yz}\) \(G_{xz}\) \(\nu_{xy}\) \(\nu_{yz}\) \(\nu_{xz}\)
