A study on mechanical behavior of bamboo fiber based polymer composites

Gupta, S K (2014) A study on mechanical behavior of bamboo fiber based polymer composites. BTech thesis.



The modern dynamic world can’t imagine its development without bringing the concept of advancement in material composite. Various researches are going on in this field to achieve the desired standard. Natural fiber reinforced polymer composite has a huge affinity to replace the composite made up of synthetic fiber. This is primarily because of the advantages like light weight, non-toxic, non-abrasive, easy availability, low cost, and biodegradable properties. The synthetic fibers have higher end of mechanical properties like tensile strength and tensile modulus however the specific mechanical properties like specific tensile modulus and other specific properties (properties/specific gravity) of natural fiber gives a satisfying result for composites as compared to synthetic fiber based composites. The objective of the present study is to investigate the mechanical behaviour of short bamboo fiber reinforced epoxy based composites. Bamboo fibers with different length and contents are reinforced in epoxy resin to fabricate composite materials. The effect of fiber length and content on the mechanical behaviour of composites is studied.
