The properties of a polyethylene matrix in contact with carbon nanoinclusions, such as carbon nanotubes and graphene plates, are studied via the molecular-dynamics method. Ultimate shear stresses for the polyethylene/graphene interface are calculated, and the effect of the filler aspect ratio on the nanocomposite elastic modulus is considered.
