Composite materials have revolutionized the field of engineering and design, providing the ability to combine two or more materials with different properties to create new materials with enhanced characteristics. The intricate process of weaving together carbon fiber and Kevlar fiber to create a 3D composite fabric is not only fascinating but also results in a beautiful, intricate pattern. Hand weaving is an art that requires precision and skill, and when combined with the use of carbon fiber and Kevlar fiber, it results in a stunningly intricate and durable fabric. The fibers are woven together at a binding angle of 45 degrees, creating a strong and flexible structure that can withstand immense stress and strain. In this work, the fabricated specimens were prepared in various architectures as a combination of carbon and Kevlar fibers. The composite was analyzed for vibrations, and the findings were contrasted with theoretical and numerical predictions. The superior stiffness and mechanical properties of carbon fibers were found to result in generally higher natural frequencies compared to Kevlar fibers.
