Atomistic Insights into the Tunable Transition from Cavitation to Crazing in Diamond Nanothread-Reinforced Polymer Composites

Figure 7

Cavity evolution and deformation patterns for polymer composites. (a) Cavity volume development at various strain rates and corresponding cavitation phenomenon. In the scenario of full agglomeration, fast cavity nucleation and fracture plane occurs early. In the scenario of partial agglomeration, cavities nucleate at the reinforced region and propagate along the interface; (b) schematic representation of microvoiding mechanism.
