Polymeric composite nanofibers have been fabricated simply by the electrospinning of polymeric solutions containing a wide variety of suspended inclusions such as nanoparticles and nanotubes. The electrospinning process for fabrication of composite nanofibers is a multi-phase and multi-physics process. In this paper, a modified particle suspension model for electrospinning nanosuspensions is established to research the electrospinning process. The model can offer in-depth insight into physical understanding of the complex process which can not be fully explained experimentally.
