Abstract

Currently, polymer nanocomposites are occupying a major domain in high performance lightweight materials. Fiber reinforced polymer composites always remain in the first row among all the composite materials because of their high Young’s modulus and strength to weight ratio with respect to conventionally used metallic components for aerospace material. However, over the last few years, the motivation has been concentrated in the direction of nanocomposites material to improve longevity, and fuel efficiency of the aircrafts. This chapter focuses on the current status of research on the properties and applications of graphene-based polymer composite structures used in aerospace engineering. The polymers and fillers used in aerospace applications; the reason for graphene and its derivatives suitability in aerospace engineering were also illustrated.
