This paper discusses the material characterization of the coupons for the glass fiber/epoxy. The elastic properties were found for composite laminate. The tensile test show that the load increased to the maximum value and then dropped suddenly as a brittle fracture at angle of 0° and 90°, while the shear response quite nonlinear for angle of 45°. It has been observed that the crack propagates in a direction perpendicular to the direction of the external load action glass fibers/epoxy composite specimens of 90° fiber orientation angle, while for 0° fiber orientation angle of glass fibers/ epoxy specimens, failure was irregular and cracks propagate in different directions. Experimentally determined material properties were compared to analytical predictions based on micromechanics. The results from the tensile test specimens obtained from experimental work show reasonable agreements with predicted results.
