As one of the most efficient structures glass fiber reinforced polymer composite truss is typically find its applications in advanced transport engineering field. The composite truss should consider not only in problem of mass but also the buckling load. The major applications of composite truss are airship, iso truss, and space truss bridges. This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation into the behaviour of filament wound multi directional glassfiber /epoxy strut under tensile loading, considered as both ends hinged condition.
