Abstract

Composites have been commonly designed and manufactured for suitable applications in which high strength and light weight are pre-requisites. This study deals with the fabrication of the glass fibre reinforced composite laminates using Vacuum Assisted Resin Infusion Moulding (VARIM) process, followed by mechanical characterization of the laminates. The tests are conducted considering its application in monocoque chassis. Tests as per ASTM standards for tensile and perimeter shear strength according to 2014 Formula SAE are performed on the laminates with varying composition using chopped strand mat and plain weave fibres as reinforcement with polyester resin as the matrix. Results of plain weave fibre reinforced composites were found to be better than that of chopped strand mats.
