This paper addresses the mechanical behavior of nano reinforcement like carbon nanotubes, graphine sheets, nano particles which are used as a constituent in composite materials. Several authors explored the mechanical properties of nanobased composites. A review of the past research is presented, and several key findings and behavioral characteristics are discussed. An overview covers the prediction of mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes, graphene sheets, nano size particulates and different modeling techniques to represent the nanobased composites, behavior of the nanocomposites under different loading and boundary conditions. Some overall important findings of the studies are that a composite material reinforced with nano substances definitely improves the structural performance of the composite material.
