A three-dimensional finite element model is developed and solved for the micromechanical prediction of Young’s modulii and Poisson’s ratios of an hybrid FRP lamina consisting of two different fiber materials (T-300 & S-Glass) embedded in a thermosetting polymer matrix. The finite element model of representative volume element of hexagonal pattern is generated in ANSYS software. The cross-section of each fiber is taken as ellipse. The effect of fiber volume fraction and ellipse aspect ratio on the predicted mechanical properties is discussed.

Keywords: Hybrid, FRP, FEM, Micromechanics
