Textile structures nowadays are widely used in technical application. Textile structures have many

application areas because of their low density, low cost and high strength. Bi-axial warp knitted fabrics

have excellent properties to improve the mechanical properties of composite structures because of

various fiber direction opportunities. Glass fiber is the mostly used reinforcement material for composites.

It is well known that glass fiber reinforced polymer matrix composites have good mechanical properties.

The aim of this study is to use waste materials for producing reinforced composite structures. Composite

layers produced with bi-axial knitted fabrics, pistachio’s shell and thermoset polyester resin.
