    Sir,
    Can anybody assist me to solve this problem.
    Given:
    Density for Resin = 1.26
    Density for Fibre = 1.78
    Modulus for Vibre = btw 280 - 300GPa
    Expectation:
    Calculate the Volume fraction of the Fibre

    No, this cannot be solved, as there is information missing.

    You need at least the total fiber weight and the thickness of the laminate with that fabric weight.
