Abstract: The usage of composite in industries or in aerospace sectors is in increasing demand which is been taken care in this noble work. This experimental study comprises of fabrication of composite by hand lay-up process and their characterization. Specifically laminated composites have been fabricated aiming different orientations of fibre. It is well known that orientation of fibre along the load direction will surely tailor the strength and different mechanical properties of the composite material. Two different kind of laminated composites have been fabricated of which one is randomly oriented and other is structured wovenglass / epoxy laminate. The aim of the research work is to monitor the hand lay-up of the fibres which directly influences the strength of each lamina in a complete laminate. To check the distribution of the fibres different test has been performed like XRay Diffractometer (XRD) and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). The result procured from the above test justifies the proper distribution and orientation of fibres and their effect on different mechanical properties. The outcome of the work will be helpful in tailoring the strength of the laminate by more specific skilled hand lay-up process.
