Experimental Characterization of E- Glass Fabric Reinforced Epoxy



In this experimental study, the glass fiber reinforced epoxy composite is prepared and the Tensile, Transverse, Flexural, Inter Laminar Shear Stress and In Plane Stress analyzed. The glass fiber is manufactured with three types of resins (a) Epoxy LY55 (b) Epoxy LY556 with 5 % reactive diluents (c) Epofine1555 (modified epoxy resin with high elongation) and Hardener. These composites are used as sports goods, automobile bodies, etc. The glass fiber reinforced epoxy composite laminates was prepared by hand layup method and it was placed on the matched plate mould for curing. The specimen is prepared from composite laminates and the mechanical properties such as Tensile, Transverse, Flexural, Inter Laminar Shear Stress and In Plane Stress has been analyzed as per the ASTM standard D-3039, D-790, D-2344 and D-3518 respectively. For the sake of validating results ANSYS software has chosen. The material properties of each resin system is obtained based on their data sheets, using rule of mixtures the required properties (E1,E212, υ23, G12,G23 ) are calculated. These values are given as inputs to the software and various tests are carried out according to the actually tested specimens. The results show the best suitable fiber resin with respect to strength.
