Abstract

This paper investigates the mechanical properties of woven glass/epoxy composites modified with multi-walled nanotube (MWNT) and n-butyl glycidyl ether (BGE) under tensile static and cyclic loadings at cryogenic temperatures. Tensile tests were conducted at liquid nitrogen temperature (77 K), and the tensile properties of the composites were evaluated. Tension-tension fatigue tests were also performed on the composites at 77 K in order to assess their fatigue performance. Failed specimens were examined by microscopy to verify the failure mechanisms.
