This paper has demonstrated that interpenetrating composites could be designed to not only have an significantly enhanced Young’s modulus, but also have a Poisson’s ratio at a desired value (e.g. positive, or negative, or zero). It is found that when the effect of the Poisson’s ratio is absent, the Young’s modulus of interpenetrating composites is closer to the Hashin and Shtrikman’s upper limit t ...
