Abstract: Characterization of engineering properties is a complex issue for fiber- reinforced composites due to their inherent anisotropy and in homogeneity. In terms of mechanical properties, advanced composite materials are evaluated by a number of specially designed test methods. In this study the incorporation of SiC fillers on Mechanical behavior of Glass-Vinyl ester (G-V) composites has been investigated. The composites are assessed by using J.J. Lloyd UTM. The properties like tensile strength, modulus, elongation at break, and flexural strength were investigated as per ASTM standards. From the experimental investigation, it is found that the tensile and flexural strength of G-V composites increased with increasing the SiC content. Also simulation of both tensile and flexural properties of GV composites with and without SiC fillers has been carried out to validate the experimental results. The fractured surfaces of G-V composites are observed using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) to reveal the results. � 2008 MS&T08.
