Braiding technique is perhaps the earliest production process of textile structures and to form continuous fibre reinforced composite materials. Now a days, braided structures are used in broad range of structural applications such as aerospace industries, automobile industries etc. These types of industries need materials with high impact resistance, light weight, longer fatigue life and so on. Braided composite structures have very good fatigue life, impact resistance, delamination resistance and better dimensional stability. This paper presents an experimental work with E-glass braided fiber.
