In this study, the mechanical properties of tensile and shear strength of lxl rib knitted fabric composite were determined in five directions: 0°, 30°, 45°, 60°, 90°, and the bearing strength of the composite were performed for the different ratio of the edge-distance-tothe-pin diameter (E/d), and the ratio of the specimen with to-the-pin diameter (W/d) in course direction. The knitted fabrics used for the study are manufactured from the 200 tex glass yarn with epoxy resin and cured in a hot
