Abstract

Onion-like carbon reinforced carbon-carbon composite was fabricated, and the influence of onion-like carbon (OLC) on the microstructure and mechanical and friction properties was investigated by porosity analysis, scanning electron microscopy, three-point bending test, nanoindentation test and ring-on-ring friction test. The results show that the sample containing OLC has a higher flexural strength (by 7.3%) and compressive strength (by 29.3%), hardness (by 2.1 times) and apparent density (by 1.1%) and smaller open porosity (7.9% vs 9.8%) and mesoporevolume, which is confirmed by porosity analysis and is attributed to improved fiber/matrix interface performance. The presence of OLC results in higher hardness and elastic modulus of carbon matrix under nanoindentation testing, which leads to modification of friction mechanism and a decrease in the wear rate under friction (by 3.3 times). Besides, OLC particles form self-lubricating film and show a graphitic carbon solid lubricant properties.
