This work fills a gap in the literature by emphasizing the static and dynamic behaviors of porous nanocomposite structures in the framework of continued mechanics-based approaches. It investigates matrices strengthened via various nanofillers such as carbon nanotubes, graphene platelets and graphene oxide powders. Equivalent properties of nanocomposites are obtained via homogenization techniques based on micromechanics approaches. Analyses are performed using an energy-based approach incorporated with the strain-displacement relations of shear deformable beam, plate or shell theorems. Also, the effects of using various nanofillers are surveyed to show which one is the best alternative to realize the goal of improving the nanocomposites’ stiffness. As one of the crucial phenomena affecting performance of nanocomposites, the effects of porosity are investigated, along with mechanical characteristics of nanocomposites. Moreover, both numerical and analytical solution methods are applied to solve problems. Aimed at researchers, academics, and professionals working across mechanical, materials, and other areas of engineering, this work ensures that readers are equipped to fully understand the mechanical characteristics of nanocomposite structures so that they can design, develop, and apply these materials effectively.
