Objectives

Main objectives:

– To identify of the optimum morphology and strategies for insertion of CNTs within composite laminates to increase fracture toughness.
– To successfully harness the piezoresistive properties of CNT assemblies to provide in-situ structural health monitoring (SHM).
– To assessing improvements in surface electrical conductivity for lightning strike protection applications.
– To investigate the effectiveness of CNT assemblies as resistive heating elements for anti-icing applications.
