Experimental Investigation of Mechanical Properties on Hybrid Laminated Composite Using Hand Layup Method
Fiber reinforced polymer composite materials are gradually substituting traditional metallic materials because of their high specific strength and better corrosion resistance. However, the cost of the composites is still higher than the traditional materials. Different fibres are used in polymer matrix composites. Glass ,aramide and carbon fibre are one of the promising reinforcements in polymer matrix composites In this paper , Glass, carbon and armid fibers are popularly used in polymer composites for their improved properties and lower weight. The influence of stacking arrangement on mechanical properties of hybrid composite containing glass ,carbon and armid fiber. Three hybrid composites of symmetrical pattern were fabricated; i.e. [GCGC]S ,[CACA]and [GAGA]S having a fixed proportion of carbon fiber and glass fiber. Mechanical characterization was done by hardness, impact, tensile and compression tests.
