This Ph.D. thesis aims to prepare laboratory-scale carbon fiber reinforced prepregs and improve the performance of their composites by incorporating functionalized single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). The effect of nano-scale functional fillers on the characterization of prepregs and their composites was investigated to develop innovative materials for primary structures. To affect dispersion characteristics, SWCNTs were functionalized by oxidizing their surface with the carboxyl (-COOH) group using acid treatment. The modified resin system containing 0.05, 0.1, and 0.2 wt. % F-SWCNTs were developed with novel multi-step dispersion techniques. FTIR spectroscopy was performed to identify new bonding groups formed after the covalent functionalization. Unidirectional carbon fiber reinforced prepregs with/without F-SWCNTs were prepared using a drum-type winding technique by utilizing the solvent-dip (solution impregnation) process. The effect of F‐SWCNTs on the curing process and kinetic parameters of the carbon fiber/epoxy-based prepregs were investigated using non‐isothermal DSC. The activation energy of the curing reaction was calculated by the isoconversional methods. Also, the new numerical approach called GMN was developed to determine the activation energy of the thermosetting materials. For the fabrication of prepreg-based composite laminates, the vacuum bag-only (VBO) method was performed. The fiber volume fractions of the CFRP samples changed between 55.3% and 50.16%. The mechanical and thermomechanical properties of prepreg-based CFRP composites with/without F-SWCNTs were investigated. The optimum mechanical properties of F-SWCNTs filled CFRP composite was achieved at 0.05 wt.% of F-SWCNTs. However, mechanical properties were decreased due to the addition of higher content of F-SWCNTs, in comparison with neat CFRP.
