Abstract: This paper deals with an experimental and FEA determination of stress values for glass fiber composite plate. Composite materials are their high strength and stiffness, low density, as compared with bulk materials, allowing for a weight reduction in the finished part. The use of composite materials for aircraft primary structures can result in significant benefits on aircraft structural cost and performance. Such applications of composite materials are expected to result in a 30–40% weight savings and a 10–30% cost reduction compared to conventional metallic structures.
