Title of the Report: Design and Performance Study of Aircraft Wing Materials using UTM ID No. / Name of the student: 2009A4PS269U / Shaatir Khanzada Discipline of Student: Mechanical
Name of the Project Supervisor: Dr. C. Periasamy

Keywords: Fibre Reinforced Polymer, Glass Fibre, Tensile Stress, Compressive Strength.

Abstract: This project aims to allow further implementation of fibre-reinforced composite materials in the airline industry. The project report initially gives a brief introduction on fibre/composite materials and the universal testing machine (UTM). A few materials with their composition, tests already conducted and a brief analysis is discussed. The final report also describes the step by step process of testing the glass fibre material used for compressive and tensile testing.
