The aim of this study is to investigate the design of continuous fiber reinforced composite pipes, produced by filament winding technique. For this purpose, the full factorial experimental design was implemented. When designing filament winding composites three major factors are the most important: fiber orientation, fiber tension and velocity of the filament winding. The ultimate target is to achieve the composite pipes with good characteristics as bearing material for construction with the lowest possible weight. Preparation of the composites was done by applying the 23 full factorial experimental design. For the purposes of these investigation, eight test specimen configurations are made and on the basis that, test results should provide material properties useful in the design stage. The velocity of the filament winding was taken to be the first factor, the second – fiber tension and the third – winding angle. The first factor low and high levels were chosen to be 525 m/min and 21 m/min, respectively, for the second factor – 64 N and 110 N, respectively and for the third factor – 100 and 900, respectively.
