- Hybridization of glass fibers into carbon fibers could be an effective way to improve the failure strain problems of pure carbon composites and to reduce vehicle weight without excessive cost. Relative glass/carbon ratios significantly influences the flexural properties and laminate geometry further optimizes them. Hybrid composite laminates tend to fail more gradually when the relative carbon fiber content is much lower. Carbon fibers fail first due to having a low strain-to-failure resulting in stress drops and the composite continues extending until glass fiber fails finally and hence the catastrophic failure behaviour can be avoided.
