Abstract

In this study tensile test simulations were conducted on fiber reinforced polymer composites of different fabric combinations using ANSYS Workbench 16.0 software platform. Hybrid and Non-hybrid composite laminates were modeled using Kevlar, Carbon and E-glass fabrics as reinforcement and Epoxy LY564/Aradur 2954 formulation was used as the matrix mixture. Tensile tests simulations were conducted on the specimen according to ASTM D3039 standards. The effect of hybridization on the Specific Strength and Specific Modulus of the composite laminates were compared. From the results it was observed that Carbon/Kevlar/Epoxy laminate specimen was ideal for structural applications where high Sp. Strength and high Sp. Modulus is required.
