In the last few years, due to the enhancement in the properties of CFRP with the presence of nano particles, the interest is increased in studying the use of CFRP hybrid nanocomposite In this paper, the effect and evaluation of mixing of nano clay nanoZnO particles and carbon fiber plies angle orientation on dynamic mechanical properties laminates of CFRP were studied.A hand layup method followed by process of vacuum bagging was used to make the samples of composite. Dynamic mechanical analyzer (DMA) was used to inspect the dynamic mechanical properties of CFRP hybrid nanocomposite specimens with changing temperature. The response surface methodology is used for design of experiments by considering the percentage of weight of nanoclay , nanoZnO and fiber orientation angle as an independent variables and storage modulus due to the flexural loading is used as response. The optimization of the storage modulus is carried out with RSM response optimizer and optimum value of storage modulus is found.
