The ductile resistance of the fibre-metal laminates has been analysed experimentally on three various different FML laminates that is made up of aluminium sheets of three different thickness namely 0.2mm, 0.3mm & 0.4mm. Tensile and flexural tests on the specimens were carried out to analyse the ductile behaviour of the FML laminates. Stress vs strain curve for tensile and load vs displacement curve for flexural test. The respective parameters like ultimate stress, young’s modulus, longitudinal strength, flexural failure, flexural modulus, etc., are calculated from the plots. The results were compared with each other to evaluate what is the impact of metal layer thickness in the FML plates. There is good variation between the experimental results is obtained. Finally the best fiber to metal ratio is found out and the result is justified.
