Abstract

This review looks at carbon nanotubes (CNT) capabilities as toughening agent in ceramic composite. CNT have exceptional mechanical strength of up to 60 GPa and stiffness of 1 TPa. Ceramic however is hard, brittle and lack of toughness. CNT were found to be capable to provide up to 173% improvement in fracture toughness of ceramic with 19 vol.% CNT. The degree of toughness improvement on CNT ceramic composite is dependent on the following parameters; i) CNT homogenous dispersion in the composite, ii) inter-wall and interfacial strength between CNT and ceramic, iii) method of producing the CNT ceramic composite, and iv) the resultant toughening mechanisms.
