Application of composite materials is increasing these days in areas like aircraft engineering to automobile industry, ships etc. because of their unique properties. In new days, use of fiber reinforced polymer composites is increasingfast due to their improved mechanical properties like tensile strength and flexural strength, and also due to their low cost and low density. It can be utilized more effectively in the development of composite materials for various industrial applications. Burmese silk orchid fiber has better mechanical properties but it'snot easily available. This research was carried out by reinforcing the matrix (Epoxy) resin with natural fiber (jute) and glass fiber. The hybrid composites reinforced with chopped glass and jute fibers were produced using hand layup method. It was found that the addition of natural fibers (jute) along with chopped glass fibers improve the mechanical properties of hybrid composites. Test specimens are cut as per the ASTM standard. Tensile strength, flexural strength are determined using universal testing machine (UTM).
