Abstract

This paper presents a study on the strain sensing behavior of carbon nanotube (CNT)-based polymer composites subjected to tensile loading. Tensile tests were performed on CNT/polycarbonate composites and the responses in strain and electrical resistance were measured during the tests. An analytical model incorporating the electrical tunneling effect due to the matrix material between CNTs was also developed to predict the electrical resistance change resulted from deformation. The analytical predictions were compared with the experimental data.
