Abstract

In a world there is ever-increasing demand for new materials, composite materials finds the topmost spot. Here in this work an attempt has been made to study the mechanical properties of Glass and Vinyl Ester composites with and without fillers. Laminates are prepared by Hand Layup technique with changing the volume percentage of Vinyl Ester and fillers in each. The laminates prepared are subjected to tensile test and systematically analyzed to study the behaviour and variation of properties with respect to their composition. The results obtained from the tests have been documented with great detail.
