Abstract

Composite materials with high specific strength and specific modulus properties are mainly used in the automotive and aerospace industries. Currently, a lot of research is happening on advanced composite materials in order to improve these properties. The objective of the present work focused on, the studies related to the effect of laterally reinforced hypodermic steel tubes in Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (S-GFRP) composite by estimating strength to weight ratio. These specimens were prepared using hand layup process. From experimental data, mechanical properties like ultimate compressive ultimate strength, stiffness, strength to weight ratio determined. The experimental results show that a GFRP specimen with lateral reinforcement of hypodermic steel tubes (S-GFRP) give high stiffness and high strength to weight ratio compared to that of plane fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP).
