In order to understand the failure process in carbon-glass hybrid composites, tensile specimens made of carbon-epoxy, glass-epoxy and carbon-glass hybrid materials were quasi-statically loaded and acoustic emission signals from these specimens were analyzed. Both failure mode as well as AE characteristics of carbon-epoxy specimens were distinctly different from those of glass-epoxy specimens. In carbon-glass hybrid of 1:1 fiber ratio, the failure process appears to be dominated by the carbon fiber behavior.
