Analytical Evaluation of Fibre-Reinforced Plastic Corrugated Sheet
AbstractFibre-reinforced' composites playa lead role as advanced materials in modem day structures.This paper reports fabrication and testing offibre-reinforced corrugated sheet employing 4-point bend loading. An in-depth analysis has been carried out using ANSYS, a finite element method package.The theoretical results obtained are compared with the experimental values. The values ofboth inputsshowed similar results. conforming at a particular boundary condition. However, more similarexperiments "on such fibre-reinforced plastic corrugated sheets have been suggested for -better comparison.
