Abstract

Even though many advanced composite material fabrication method is available, still hand layup method is a major part of a research work. Hand-layup process is time consuming and inconsistent method, but due its low cost and versatility, this method is used for production of composites. In this project, a hybrid carbon composite has been fabricated and tested for two different compositions. From testing results we studied that carbon-glass composite fiber is tougher than the glass-bagasse-carbon composite fiber and which is harder than the glass-bagasse-carbon composite fiber. The limitation of the carbon-glass composite fiber is more costly than the glass-bagasse-carbon composite fiber but it gives more strength.
