Abstract

Penetration of composites in the wind and aerospace sector is very critical for sustainable business growth. The primary focus is toward a reduction in composite weight and thereby the cost of the material. Further, advancement in the improvement of the mechanical strength of the composites can lead to the development of lightweight high-performance composites which is imperative for these growing market sectors. This review focus on various ongoing researches on graphene and natural silk being used as nano reinforcement in the epoxy composites that have shown significant potential to enhance the mechanical properties and thereby result in reducing the weight of the structural members used in wind turbine and aircraft. Also, this review explores the novel concept of graphene and natural silk fiber being used as combined reinforcement materials for the development of high-performance epoxy composite materials.
