Abstract

This work presents a historical review of the researches procured by various scientists and engineers dealing with the nanocomposite materials and continuous systems manufactured from such materials. Nanocomposites are advanced type of well-known composite materials which have been reinforced with nanosize reinforcing fibers and/or particles. Such materials can be better suit for the industrial applications of which remarkable improved material properties are needed. In other words, the material properties of nanocomposites are superior to those of macroscale composites due to the enhanced features of materials in the nanoscale. These materials are being more and more employed by designers in the aerospace, mechanics and automotive applications as constituent elements instead of the conventional composite materials. Henceforward, it is of great significance to be aware of the researches conducted in this are by researchers to be able to predict the behaviors of structures consisted of such materials in real working conditions. In what follows, the mechanical analyses performed on different types of nanocomposite structures including carbon nanotube reinforced (CNTR), graphene reinforced (GR), graphene platelet reinforced (GPLR), graphene oxide reinforced (GOR) and multi-scale hybrid (MSH) nanocomposite ones will be reviewed and the most crucial highlights of the proposed scientific activities will be discussed.
