AbstractThe tensile behavior, flexural strength and impact strength were studied in this research for some epoxy composites. First, epoxy composite reinforced with carbon fibers (chopped), secondly,hybrid epoxy composite reinforced with carbon fibers (chopped) and glass fibers (woven roven) with volumefraction(30) % for each type.The tests were done at room temperature (34±2 ºC). In this work the hybrid composite (C+G/Epoxy) have the higher mechanical properties than that composite (C/Epoxy).The results shown that the exists of woven glass fiber increasing the tensile behavior, flexural strength and impact strength of hybrid composite in comparison with the composite reinforced with randomly chopped carbon fibers.
