Abstract

This paper aims to study the mechanical properties and vibrational damping characteristics of carbon/glass fiber reinforced with filler SiC Epoxy Hybrid polymer composite, which can be used in many applications and in engineering structures. The properties are joined together in one material by utilizing distinctive filaments in in one resin matrix is to create and investigations the carbon/glass fiber fortified epoxy cross breed composite with addition of silicon carbide fillers with various weight fractions (3%,6%,9%). The silicon carbide filler are used reinforcement and fabricated using Hand lay-up and compression molding technique. The laminated specimen are tested as per ASTM standards to investigate various mechanical properties and vibration damping characteristics were evaluated   using vibration tester to study various vibration characteristics like  natural frequency, damping ratio, loss factor, for composite specimen .The results indicates that understand the improvement in the mechanical properties and damping characteristics improved with increase in weight percentage of silicon carbide filler reinforcement content.
