Abstract
The characterization of the effective mechanical properties and geometry of the interphase in a heterogeneous material is a key issue for the design of polymer nanocomposites due to the dominant effect of the interphase on the overall behavior of the composites. In this study, molecular dynamics (MD) simulation and finite element (FE) analysis were integrated to develop a mechanics-based multiscale approach that can derive both the global stiffness and the local load transfer on the filler surface of the particulate nanocomposites. The unknown mechanical response and geometrical boundaries of the interphase (polymer networks adsorbed on the particle surface) are numerically obtained from a continuum model through the matching of homogenization and deformation energy to a full atomic molecular model. The equivalent continuum models given from the present multiscale method successfully represent the virial local stresses at both the interphase and matrix regions of the full-atomic model, as well as the particle size dependent stiffness of the nanocomposites. The proposed method is used to characterize the internal mechanical behavior of the intermediate media in terms of the nanoparticle size, and the nanophysics of the intermediate media are discussed in detail.
