Abstract: Fibre composites are nowadays being used in various engineering applications to increase the strength and optimize the weight and the cost of the product. In engineering field, usage of composite material is gradually growing. Due to the vast concrns in natural composites made out from the natural fibre& resin is said to be one the new advancement in many fields. This gave the idea of this present work. In this paper, an experimental investigation has been carried out to utilize the fibre extracted from banana and convert it into valuable product which are to be used in our day to day life. A Specimen is fabricated by hybridisation of Natural fibres (Banana & Jute fibres) along with the epoxy resin. Another Specimen is fabricated by hybridisation of Fibre (Banana, Jute & Carbon Fibre) along with the help of epoxy Resin. Experiments are carried out as per American Standard of Testing and Materials (ASTM) to find the mechanical property of both specimens. In World wide, scientists have took the work of accessing the chracteristics of various fibres which are eaily accessible and cheaper in cost availability by using various ASTM standards. This work is one among the researches in accessing the low cost easily accessible fibre to make it feasible for the usage. Various effects of loading on the length of the prepared specimen and various mechanical properties like flexural strength, tensile strength of the prepard specimens are studied.
