Calculation and Measurement of Elastic Modulus of Nano BaTiO3 Enhanced IPMC
The Mechanical parameters of elastic modulus about the preparation technology of BaTiO3/IPMC (Ionic Polymer Metal Composite) were studied. In order to get the relationship between the elastic modulus and the different content of BaTiO3/IPMC the Mori-Tanaka method based on Eshelby equivalent inclusion theory was used. In order to verify the correctness of the model, Solution casting method was used to prepare different content of BaTiO3/IPMC (100:1,100:3,100:5,100:7). The elastic modulus of IPMC was texted by tensile testing and the bending test of cantilever. The result shows that: The elastic modulus of IPMC film increased by 6.3% ~ 84.7% with addition of BaTiO3. It was proved that the reinforced fillers could greatly improve the elasticity modulus of IPMC.
