Abstract

Hybrid fabrics represent a rapidly emerging branch of reinforcements for composite
materials. A justified use of these textiles requires good understanding of their behaviour and their
modelling tools. Hybrid composites have significant strain differences amongst their phases. The lack
of information on the applicability of the homogenisation methods in finite element and mesomechanical
models in predicting the mechanical properties of Intraply Woven hybrid Composites
(IWHC) has provided the motivation for this study. The emphasis was put on developing FE model,
while investigating other meso-mechanical models concerning their efficiency, accuracy, applicability
and limitations. Results were obtained from FEA and meso-mechanical models. Tensile testing was
conducted to characterise the properties and mechanisms of failure for different carbon content hybrid
composites.
