Abstract

Hybrid composites are one of the prominent materials being extensively developed and are gaining momentum due to features like greater flexibility in design, high specific strength and reduced cost of manufacturing. Hybrid composites exhibit better mechanical properties when compared to traditional composites. Present study deals with interlaminar shear and flexural strength of E-Glass/Jute composites. Composite laminates with basket weave (BW) and twill weave (TW) patterns were fabricated using hand layup technique. Fiber weight fractions (FWF) of 10%, 15%, 20% and 25% were adopted. Experiments were conducted in accordance with ASTM standards. Results indicate that laminates with twill weave form exhibited better flexural and interlaminar shear strength.
