This paper evaluates the mechanical characteristics of laminated polymer nanocomposites modified by graphene oxide. The nanocomposite samples were fabricated using the traditional hand-layup method (HLM) at three different weight percentages (1\%, 2\%, and 3\%). Tensile and flexural tests analyzed the mechanical behavior of the produced composite. The viscoelastic and thermal properties of the nanocomposite samples are calculated using dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA). Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) reveals the failure processes on the broken surfaces of the nanocomposite specimens. By enhancing the mechanical properties of structural components, the Graphene Oxide (GO) additives in composites make them more efficient than pure samples.
