Theoretical Evaluation to Tensile Strength of Composite Material by Using Ansys Program


In this research the tensile strength of vinyl ester resin reinforced with different weight percentage (20%,40%,60%) from Woven roving glass fibers (E) type (0°-45°) has been studied theoretically by using Ansys program version (11) to estimation the effect of different reinforcing under variation loading. The standard specification (ISO-R-527)was used to fabricant the test specimens in Ansys program.The theoretical results shows that high tensile strength value for vinyl ester resin after reinforcing with glass fibers due to high elastic modulus for these fibers and this strength will increase with increasing percentage of fibers and this agree with the experimental results obtained from tensile test .
