Saha, Saurav (2011) A study on effect of fiber parameters on mechanical behavior of natural fiber based polymer composites. BTech thesis.
Fiber reinforced polymer composites have many applications as a class of structural materials because of the case of fabrication, relatively low cost of production & superior cost as compared to polymer resins. The fiber which
serves as a reinforcement in reinforced plastics may be synthetic or natural. Although the synthetic fibers such as glass, carbon, possess high specific strength, their fields of applications are limited because of their inherent higher cost of production. In this connection, an investigation has been carried out to make use of bamboo fiber which is a natural fiber abundantly available in India.Natural fibers are not only strong & light weight but also relatively very cheap. The objective of the present work is to study the effect of fiber loading and fiber length on mechanical behavior of bamboo fiber reinforced
epoxy composites. Finally, the surface morphology of the composites of fractured surfaces has made using SEM study.
