The present study involves fabrication and fatigue life assessment of multi-layered, woven jute fibres with epoxy matrix composites. Jute fabric were treated with 1N sodium hydroxidesolution for a duration of 6 hours. Alkali treatment was done to modify internal structure as well as surface properties of fibre. Laminates were fabricated by laying up multi layered woven jute fabric at varying angle [0-900/ (±450)2/0-900]. Vacuum bagging method was used to reduce the void content and thus increase the quality of composites. Tension-Tension fatigue tests were performed with a constant fatigue stress ratio (R=0.1) and results obtained from the tests were used to plot S-N Curve. A model based on power law equation was used for curve fitting.
