Abstract: In todays industrial scenario the need for bio degradable matreials in all the fields including automobile and mechanical field is increasing . To satisfy this needs we need to find an alternative natural sorce based materials with similar properties. These natural products attribute can be enhanced using some processing techniques and by adding suitable chemicals. Composite materials are the one which is ruling our world and the need for them is high due ton their high srength to weight ratio. Thus composite research is happening in large number throughout the world, in which the hybrid composite manufacturing has been wide range of investigations. The composites have superior properties like light weight, low density, stiffness, and better mechanical properties. The present work aims on mechanical and thermal behaviours of GKG, GAG, and KGA fibre reinforced epoxy composites. Hand layup method used for fabricate hybrid composite laminates. Work has been carried out to explore the tensile strength, Hygrothermal exposure. For testing and analysis, the specimens are cut as per ASTM standards.
Keywords: Composite materials, Hypothermal Exposure.
Scope of the Article: Composite Materials
