The review addresses the effect of various carbon and iron-based percentage nano- additives on both electromagnetic (EM) wave and mechanical properties of composite materials. It also assessed the influence of particle and fiber size along with the manufacturing process, on mechanical properties (tensile strength and flexural strength), fracture behaviors (fracture toughness) and electromagnetic properties (reflection loss). Reviewing the selection of nanomaterials for a particular frequency band and application, as well as their impacts on bulk materials in relation to loading, were overviewed. As per this review, adding those iron and carbon-based additives influence positively for both electromagnetic and mechanical properties. Furthermore, review organized natural based fiber and filler-based composites along with fillers for the production of green strong radar materials. The review also showed, how highest and smaller percentage of iron-based fillers affected for microwave absorption and mechanical properties. Mainly, the optimized use of nano particles percentage for both mechanical and electromagnetic wave to produce strong radar materials were overlooked. Finally, these papers give a quick hint on how these nano particles manufacturing methods and particle size affect the mechanical properties and micro wave absorption of composite materials.
Key words: Microwave absorption / iron powder / nano carbon / tensile strength / fracture toughness / nanocomposite
