Composite materials are widely used in fields of automobile, aerospace and naval industries due to their high strength to weight ratio, light weight, high stiffness. The achievement of weight reduction with adequate improvement of mechanical properties has made a composite a good replacement material for other conventional materials. Glass fiber reinforced composite materials have higher strength and stiffness ratio unlike metal materials, because the strength can be increased by fiber orienting in different directions. The cost of production can also be decreased because of its high productivity. Its application can be seen in structures of aeroplane, cars and can be used for pipes. In present work composite laminate plate is prepared by mixing Graphene powder in glass fiber reinforced composite plate. The hand lay-up process has been adopted for preparing the composite plates. The composite laminated plates are considered for analysis. The tensile strength of the composite plate is to be tested on Universal Testing Machine. The hardness test on composite plate is to be carried out on Brinell’s hardness tester. The flexural test on composite plate is also carried on Flexural Testing Machine.
