Mechanical and solid particle erosion behavior of modified rice-husk filled epoxy composite

Singh , Ajeet Bahadur (2013) Mechanical and solid particle erosion behavior of modified rice-husk filled epoxy composite. MTech thesis.



In today’s modern age growing population and product requirement has triggered the issue of low cost manufacturing material which should also be renewable resource to meet the requirement easily anywhere in the world. Composites are combination of two or more materials that provide characteristics which cannot be achieved by single material system. This is achieved by cohesion of the materials made by physically combining two or more compatible materials, different in characteristics, composition and sometimes in form. Efforts have been made in many researches in the field of composite to make it low cost, easy availability, ecofriendly and also that it can fulfill all the criteria of its ease of manufacturing and usage. Natural fibers have attracted attention of many researchers as filler for the composite materials because of their low cost, ecofriendly and ease of availability; hence natural fibers are suitable alternative of traditional synthetic and inorganic fibers. Accordingly extensive studies on preparation of polymer matrix composite (PMC) replacing the synthetic fibers with natural fibers like Jute, Sisal, Pineapple, Bamboo, Kenaf and Bagasse were carried out. These plant fibers have many advantages over glass fiber or carbon fiber like renewability, environmental friendly, low cost, lightweight and high specific mechanical performance.
