Micromachining of nanocomposites is deemed to be a complicated process due to the anisotropic, heterogeneous structure, and advanced mechanical properties of these materials associated with the size effects in micromachining. It leads to poorer machinability in terms of high cutting force, low surface quality, and high rate of tool wear. In part 1 of this two-part review paper, a comprehensive review on mechanical properties of various nanocomposites will be presented while the second part of the paper will focus on the micro-machinability of these nanocomposite materials.
