    Abstract :

    Since the early 1960s, there has been an increase in the demand for stronger, stiffer and lighter weight materials for use in the aerospace, transportation and construction industries. High performance demands on engineering materials have led to extensive research and development of new and improved materials such as composites. Composite materials used for structural purpose often have low densities, resulting in high stiffness to weight and high strength weight ratios when compared to traditional engineering materials. In addition, to the high fatigue strength to weight ratio and fatigue damage tolerance of many composites also makes them an attractive option. As a result, composite materials are rapidly being utilized in industries that have traditionally used metals, and are now at the forefront of research and development in many related areas.The overall objective of this article is to prepare glass fibre reinforced epoxy composites and to study their tensile, flexural and chemical properties. This article consists of the following specific objectives. Preparation of composite specimens by using the raw materials of glass fibre. By varying weight content ratio. Test the composite specimen by Universal Testing machine. Find out the tensile, flexural and chemical properties of composite specimens of glass fibre.
