Abstract—In this work the mathematical software was used to present the simple mechanical behavior of a single layer of composite material. The effect of volume fraction of continuous fibre, loading angles and orientation of fibres distribution in the matrix was investigated. It was shown that the strength has been increased as the fibre volume fraction increases. Similar results were obtained for the composites that using the E-glass and S-glass fibre. The maximum exhibited modulus of elasticity was obtained when the fibr’s angle is equal to the loading angle. The virtual design points have been determined for both types of glass. Therefore, the optimum working limits were determined. The results indicate that the S-glass gives ranges of properties to work higher than E-glass. Moreover, the results show that these ranges of working properties will be decreased as the volume of fraction decreases.
