Summary In this study, a finite element-based model was developed to investigate the mechanical behaviour of functionally graded carbon nanofibre (CNF)/phenolic nanocomposites. Four functionally graded nanocomposites (FGNs), a non-graded nanocomposite (NGN), and a pure phenolic with the same geometry and total carbon nanofibre content were designed and fabricated. Flexural tests were conducted to validate the proposed finite element model. Close agreement was obtained between experimental results and numerical predictions. The results showed that flexural modulus can be improved about 45% by controlling the CNF content across the thickness of the samples.
