|Abstract:||This paper reports tensile properties of single layer and multilayer knitted glass fabric reinforced epoxy composites. The single layer composite was subjected to tensile load in off-axis angles of 0°, 30°, 45°, 60° and 90°. The multilayer laminates stacked as configurations of [0°]4, [0°/±45°/0°], [0°/90°/90°/0°] and [90°]4 were tested under a uniaxial tensile load. Emphasis was on the fracture characteristics of these composites. A 'matrix digestion and layer peeling' method was used to visualize the fracture modes of all the layers in a fractured laminate on a lamina level. It was found that the fracture mode of an angle-plied lamina in the laminate is different from that of a single layer composite under an off-axial tensile load.|
