Numerical investigation of graphene and graphene-polymer nanocomposites

Wang, Mingchao (2014) Numerical investigation of graphene and graphene-polymer nanocomposites. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis is a comprehensive and deep investigation on graphene and graphene-polymer nanocomposites. It explores the strong structure-property relationships in both graphene and graphene-based polymeric nanocomposites. A number of significant conclusions, including failure mechanism in graphene, interfacial load transfer and thermal transport mechanisms in graphene-polymer nanocomposites, have been drawn through both atomistic simulations and theoretical analysis. These results can provide direct guidelines for development of new graphene-based materials and devices.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
