Abstract: Substituting composite structures for conventional metallic structures has many advantages because of higher specific stiffness and strength of composite materials. In the recent days, there is a huge demand for a light weight material such as fibre reinforced polymer composites seems to be a promising solution to this arising demand. These materials have gained attention due to their applications in the field of automotive, aerospace, sports goods, medicines and household appliances. This work focus on mechanical characteristics of carbon epoxy material with volume fraction 0.4, 0.5, 0.6 etc., so that recommendation of carbon fibre for various applications will be possible as per its strength.

Keywords: composite material, volume fraction, conventional structure, household appliances.
