Study of Mechanical Properties of Hybrid Natural Fiber Composite

Meena, Vishvendra and Saroya, Avtar (2011) Study of Mechanical Properties of Hybrid Natural Fiber Composite. BTech thesis.



The present experimental study aims at learning the mechanical behaviour of hybrid natural fiber composites. Samples of several Jute-Bagasse-Epoxy & Jute-Lantana camara-Epoxy hybrids were manufactured using hand layup method where the stacking of plies was alternate and the weight fraction of fibre and matrix was kept at 40%-60%.Specimens were cut from the fabricated laminate according to the ASTM standards for different experiments. For Tensile test & flexural test samples were cut in Dog-bone shape and flat bar shape respectively. After that experiment is performed under Universal testing machine (UTM). ILSS (flexural strength) & Tensile strength were observed and compared to base values of epoxy polymer to perceive the change in strength. SEM analysis was done to ascertain the mode of failure.
