Abstract: Fiber reinforced plastics or polymers are used where the design requires weight reduction, precision engineering, and limited tolerances. They are widely used in the field of Aerospace, automotive, marine and construction industries due to their advanced properties. This paper deals with the investigation of mechanical properties and characterisation of Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics(GFRP) with zero-degree orientation and Chopped Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastics(CGFRP). They are tested and fabricated using the Universal testing machine and impact test machine.
