Computer Simulation of Graphene-Reinforced Carbon Fibers

Posted By Graphene Council, Monday, May 18, 2020

Researchers found a way to strengthen carbon fibers, which are widely used in the airline industry but are typically very expensive. Adding graphene boosts the strength and stiffness of the material, and paved the way for making a cost-effective material that could one day strengthen cars.  Shown is a computer simulation of adding graphene to the process of growing carbon fibers.  This project is a collaboration between Penn State, the University of Virginia, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Solvay and Oshkosh.
