Article Preview

Fibre reinforced composite materials are demanded by the industry especially for the applications where weight reduction is critical because of their high specific strength, ability to resist corrosion. The present work aims on evaluation of various mechanical properties of glass fiber reinforced polymer composites (GFRP) with inclusion of single walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) in different weight fractions. Before performing the tests, the specimens were allowed to immerse in fresh water and sea water simultaneously for a period of 11 days (110 Hours) under hydrostatic pressure and further observing the amount of moisture content that has been accumulated in the specimens if any. This type of material can be used in marine industries as an alternative material for fabrication of hull of a ship and also used to design and fabricate various components of a ship.
