Paper Title:
Effects of the Length of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) in CNT Reinforced Composites
  Abstract

In this paper, the strength of the singular stress field near the ends of the CNTs in composites was analyzed to clarify the effects of the CNT length on stress filed in the CNT reinforced composites when studying the fracture toughness. The singular stress field was separated into two types of singularities, symmetric and skew-symmetric, near the ends of CNTs according to the deformation and loading types. The stress intensity factors of the singular stress field were calculated for these two types of singularities. The effects of the CNT length in CNT reinforced composites on these stress intensity factors were investigated.
