Fabrication and Characterization of Hybrid Composite Fibers

Harikrishna Malyala and Vishnu Vardhan Mukkoti


Fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials were heterogeneous without plastic deformation. They are currently used in a range of contemporary applications, including manufacturing sports equipment, transportation, and maritime industries. Carbon FRP and glass FRP composites, together with additional fiber reinforced materials, have been gradually replacing conventional materials due to their exceptional durability and low specific weight characteristics. Their ability to be manufactured in a variety of combinations with customized strength qualities, as well as their high fatigue, toughness, in addition to high temperature wear as well as oxidation resistance, make these materials an enormous choice for industrial applications. A Carbon FRP composite outperforms Glass FRP composites in terms of mechanical qualities. However, catastrophic failure has been recorded in carbon fiber composites due to limited carbon fiber elongation. To accomplish both design adaptability and cost savings, both carbon/glass hybrid composite with its mechanical properties must be developed. Glass/carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites are increasingly being used in industry. As a result, careful design selection for a particular use of these kinds of hybrid composites is essential. Hand lay-up was expected to be used to create the hybrid laminates. The preparation and testing of glass/carbon fiber hybrid composites with various combinations is envisaged. Tensile and flexural strength tests were recommended to evaluate their performance capability.
