Abstract: In the present work the flexural properties of selected composite plates are examined. The three point bending test happens to be widely acceptable method for the evaluation of flexural properties of the composite plates because of its simple geometry and structure. In this paper the influence of filler material and thickness of laminates under three point bending load on simply supported pins are reported for selected filler material combination. Filler materials used here are Glass fiber epoxy with silicon carbide, Graphite fiber epoxy with silicon carbide and Carbon fiber epoxy with silicon carbide. Investigation is carried out as per ASTM D790 standard. The mechanical properties such as flexural strength, flexural stiffness of the composite plates were investigated and reported. This work broadly points out that the flexural strength is dependent on the thickness of the laminates and amount of the filler material of the laminated composites. It was found that Carbon fiber composite shows the superior flexural strength with 6 wt% of SiC among the specimens under study.
