This study focuses on the deformation of cross arms made from composite material under static loading. Two materials properties of fiberglass with are assigned to the cross arms model and it is subjected to a load at the one end of the cross arms. A bracing support is then installed, and the deformation and stress experienced by the cross arms are observed and compared with the case where no bracing support is used. The results obtained show that material B has lower deformation value, but experienced greater stress compared to material A. The bracing managed to reduce the total deformation by about 12% and 20% for material A and B respectively. The reduction of stresses experienced by the cross arms ranges from 4% to 30%.
