Abstract: Composite materials serve as an alternative to the conventional metals. These materials used in various applications like automotive, aerospace, marine industries, etc. so, there is a requirement for detailed base of structural design. Air craft industries use composite material in their major structural works instead of the metals as composites have low weight density. The major key area of these structural work is fabricating the joint of composites. The data base for these joint strengths is more important. In this research work, the effect of Titanium Di Oxide filler materials in the GFRP and on the lap joint Bidirectional ply Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer is fabricated for changing the performance characteristics of composite. Tensile and flexural test has been carried for the above specimen. Investigation of the effect of the lap joint specimens has been carried experimentally. The results of the specimens are compared.
Keywords: Titanium Di Oxide, GFRP, Lap joint, Tensile strength, Flexural strength.
Scope of the Article: Bio-Science and Bio-Technology
