Due to the continuous change in environment, a researchers struggle to explorer their potential of natural and synthetic fibres along the wide diversity of industrial applications, through developing of the advanced fibre supported by fibre plastic composite to displace conventional metals and alloys. The current study aims to develop the on going researches through exploring the use of fibres as an alternative substance entered strongly in the production lines, and to investigate the hybridization on the mechanical properties of composite parts.  This leads to describe the proposed structure in composite parts engaged with carbon, kevlar, glass and basalt fibres. The modeling and analysis of the components are carried out using finite element method. This analysis is permit to allow for examining and studying the effect of vibration and stress induced in the composite and allow to focus deeply into mechanical response.
