Abstract

Hybrid composites utilize more than one kind of strands within the same matrix to urge the synergistic impact of both fibers' properties on composites' general properties. Hybridization can be performed from artificial, natural, and a combination of both fibers. The constituent filaments can be altered in numerous ways, driving to the variety in composite properties. Partial substitution of glass fiber with natural ones offers an advantage compared with glass fiber composites while permitting to obtain a mechanical performance higher than using pure natural fiber composites. Recently, researchers are tending towards the development of hybrid composites which will provide good static properties. In this context, a concise review has been done on the recent developments of natural/glass fiber-reinforced composites made by hand lay-up method. It includes a survey of the past research already available involving the hybrid composites and the effect of various parameters on composites' performance studied by various researchers.
