Effect of stacking sequence of mechanical and tribological properties woven bamboo-glass fabric reinforced polymer hybrid composites has been investigated experimentally. Laminate samples were fabricated by hand layup technique in a mold and cured under light pressure at room temperature for 48 h. All the laminates were made with a total of four plies, by varying the number and position of glass layers so as to obtain five different stacking sequences. One group of all bamboo laminate was also fabricated for comparison purpose. Specimen preparation and testing were carried out as per ASTM standards. The results indicated that the properties of bamboo composite can be significantly improved by incorporation of glass fiber in polymer composite. The layer sequence has greater effect on mechanical and tribological properties of hybrid composite.
