      <Abstract>The objective of this paper is toSuperior  mechanical  properties  of  composite  materials  such  as  high  stiffness  and  strength  to weight ratios, corrosive resistance and low coefficients of thermal expansion, caused it to be used increasingly in many areas of technology including marine, aerospace, automotive and others. To take advantage of full potential of composite materials, accurate models and design methods are required the most common structural elements are plates and shells.  Laminated composites are one of the classifications of the composites which are used in structural elements like leaf springs, automobile drive shafts, and gears, and axles.An accurate  understanding  of  their structural  behaviour  is  required, such  as  the  deflections,  the  through  thickness  distributions  of stresses  and  strains,  the  large  deflection  behaviour  and,  of  extreme  importance  for  obtaining strong, reliable multi-layered structures. In  general,  the  fibres  in  the  composite  materials  can  be  of  unidirectional  and  bidirectional.  Here the focus is on unidirectional fibre composite materials.  The fibres can be oriented in many ways i.e., 0, 10, 20,30,45,90 degrees etc., but the strength in each type will be different.  Using  the  load-deflection  graphs,  the  maximum  load  and  flexural  strength  are calculated. The attention is to note the variation of flexural strength of a composite material with the  variation  of  fibre  orientation  and  comparing  the  results  with  practical  results.  Here the modelling of composite material with different fibre orientations is done in Ansys software and simulation is done on them and those results are compared with practical results.</Abstract>
