This study focusses on investigating the fatigue crack growth behavior in glass fiber laminates embedded with carbon nanotube membranes consisting of different functional groups. In addition to fatigue behavior, quasistatic tensile properties were analyzed to gain better insight into the mechanical properties of these hybrid glass fiber laminates. It was found that tensile strength of the laminates increased by embedding the carbon nanotube membranes but elastic moduli showed different trends with respect to the type of functionalization that was done on the embedded carbon nanotube membranes. Fatigue life was seen to considerably increase in the case of amine functionalized and pristine carbon nanotube membrane embedded GFRPs.
