Now a day’s weight plays a very important role in aircraft industries. The reason behind this is efficient & effective working of aircraft. It also needs the high strength to weight ratio. This requirement is fulfilled by the composites.
In this research, GLARE is a hybrid composite consisting of thin aluminum, glass fiber & epoxy layer. GLARE materials have been using over 36 years for wide range of advance aerospace structural applications. GLARE laminates offer a distinctive amalgamation of properties such as outstanding fatigue resistance, high specific static properties, exceptional impact resistance, good flame resistance, corrosion resistance and ease of manufacture and repair. But the delaminating occurs in the sheets of aluminum and similarly aluminum wire mesh is used.
Solicitation of GLARE materials for the skin or the outer parts here presented the need of GLARE materials in supportive structural members; the present work focuses on the fabrication various structural cross sections of glare material. For fabrication purpose, selected method is hand lay-up. Static & dynamic analysis of these glare material cross sections was carried out; it follows a comparative study with the aluminum cross sections gives that the glare has a better performance.
