Abstract
A multiscale modeling approach is proposed to characterize the interfacial behavior and the interphase properties of epoxy nanocomposites. The interfacial characteristics between the filler and matrix are investigated using molecular dynamics (MD) and molecular mechanics (MM) simulations. With increasing crosslink conversions, the interfacial adhesion between the filler and matrix is reduced which is attributed to the changes of inherent non-bond interaction characteristics at the interface, resulting in retarded reinforcing effect on the stiffness and thermal stability of epoxy nanocomposites. Moreover, to understand the structural change in the interphase region of nanocomposites with crosslinldng, the radial density profile, the local crosslinks distribution, and the free volume at the filler surface are further examined. The results of structural features consistently demonstrate that the structural conformation of the interphase is substantially influenced by the reduction of interfacial communication with increasing crosslink conversion. In order to take into account the variations of interfacial compliance and the thermomechanical property of the interphase region, the effective interphase concept is implemented. Further, the micromechanics-based multi-inclusion model provides a reasonable prediction for the thermomechanical property of composites using the effective interphase concept. (C) 2017 Elsevier Ltd.
