Abstract
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have found to possess high strength and stiffness as well as high aspect ratio and low density, making them a strong candidate for the reinforcement in polymer composites. Existing research has reported that the mechanical and physical properties of CNTs are superior to those of carbon fibers. Therefore, in recent years, CNTs have been used for the reinforcement in composite, forming the CNT-reinforced composite. This CNT-reinforced composite can be used in the form of beam, plate or shell structural component. With the increasing research works devoted to this topic, it will be important to know the current trends and challenges of nanocomposite materials.
