Abstract Composites are an important class of materials available to mankind. Studies of these composites are plays a very important role in material science, metallurgy, chemistry, solid mechanics and engineering applications. The E-glass fiber reinforced polymer composite are more widely used in the automotive industry and other industrial applications, due to their advantages, like low cost, noise control, low weight and ease of processing. Presently very limited work has been done on the mechanical properties of chopped strand mat of E-glass fiber reinforced composites. The present project works aims to prepare E-glass fiber based composite with percentage variation of glass fiber content like 1%, 2% and 3% with using a bisphenol A as matrix material and conducting the mechanical ( tensile, compressive and flexural) testing on the composite. As a final point of view, mechanical results are compared with the FEA results by using analysis software like ANSYS. Keywords : chopped strand mat E-glass fiber, polymer composites, Bisphenol A, FEA, mechanical test. 1. Introduction Composite materials are an important class of materials which are now available to mankind in large quantity. Composite materials are important for mechanical, chemical and civil engineers, material scientists for using them on a huge amount of engineering and other applications. Modern composites had started in 1930s. Nowadays the technological development increases on advances in the material field. The greatest advantage of composite materials is stiffness and strength together with light weight. Composites materials have properties, which could not be achieved by either of the constituent materials alone. Researchers are finding ways to improve other qualities of composites so they may be strong, lightweight, long-lived, and inexpensive to produce. Dr.P.K.Palani and M.Nanda [1] analyzed the mechanical Properties of E-glass fiber and they conclude that, tensile strength of 1wt% and 7wt% of nanoclay composite is less compared to the 5wt% of nanoclay composite and also the hardness for 1wt% and 7wt% of nanoclay composite is low compared to 5wt% of nanoclay composite. Milan Zmindak, Martin Dudinsky [7], they studied computational modeling of composite materials reinforced by glass fiber. From this study they conclude that fiber length is much greater than the critical length. Dr.N.Seetharamaiah, Dhanaraj Pamar [9],

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
