Abstract: This paper investigates the effect of width of the specimen and crack length on the fracture properties of glass/epoxy laminated composites. Three different widths namely 30, 40 and 50 mm were considered. The gauge length of the specimen was taken in such a way that it was four times the width of the specimen, and five different crack length to width ratios (a/D) were taken into consideration namely 0, 1/8, 2/8, 3/8, 4/8. The tensile test was conducted in INSTRON 8862 universal tensile machine under displacement control mode. All the tensile tests were conducted at a strain rate of 1 mm/min.
