The objective of this research is to investigate the performances of the carbon-basalt/epoxy hybrid composites under flexural loading. In this work, the hybrid composites were manufactured by the vacuum assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM) process. The variations of flexural strength and modulus of the hybrid composite according to the number of basalt fabric were investigated, and we obtained the expression to calculate their mechanical properties. In the study of flexural properties for the hybrid composites with different stacking sequence of the reinforcements, we knew that their properties strongly depend on the reinforcing position of carbon and basalt fabric.
