In this work, the storage modulus of epoxy and graphene-epoxy nanocomposites are modeled using a temperature and rate dependent modulus formulation. The stiffening effect of reinforcements is included to the elastic modulus formulation for the modeling of nanocomposite materials. Simulation results are compared to experimental data from Acar et al.
