Abstract For a long time, scientists and engineers have been figuring out ways to incorporate carbon nanotubes in composites. As a result CNTs are being tested in various industries as light, tough and smart alternative to traditional materials. To encompass the increasing demand for CNTs in various industries; more people should be concentrating on improving mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties of these materials. In this article carbon nanotubes reinforced composites (CNRCs) are tested for their mechanical properties using 3-point bend test. CNRCs are exceptionally strong with their performance; declaring them as a potentially good structural material for aerospace and aeronautical applications.
