In this study, the tensile properties and fatigue life of woven jute-glass hybrid-reinforced epoxy composite were investigated experimentally. Various types of composites with different constituents (jute, glass and hybrid composites) were prepared and tested according to ASTM (D3039 and D3479) standards. Tests included: tensile test for determining the monotonic tensile strength and modulus, and tension-tension fluctuating cyclic loading with a frequency of 5 Hz and stress ratio of 0.1 for meas...

The present study deals with the fabrication and investigation of mechanical properties of new class FRP (glass–jute reinforced fibers). Among various fibers, jute is the most widely used natural fiber due to its advantages like easy availability, low density, and satisfactory mechanical properties. Composite materials having different mechanical properties are based on its fiber content, orientation of fiber, types of resins, length, etc. To know the effects of fibers for different conditions, ...

The composites developed from natural fibre have brought indisputable advantages over synthetic materials in terms of nontoxicity, efficient waste disposability, comparable strength, etc. Some automotive structures such as in aerospace and motor racing vehicles, strength-to-weight ratio is precisely imperative and fibre-reinforced composite materials are used to develop such structures with critical stiffness and weight sensitivities. The environmental effect and the subsequent failure of the fi...

This paper investigates tensile, flexural, and dynamic mechanical properties of natural and hybrid thermoset composite laminates made from flax/glass and jute/glass fibres. Hybrid laminates with various stacking sequences were manufactured by vacuum infusion method. Weight and cost of composites decreased using cheaper and lightweight natural fibres (flax and jute). Results showed that composite laminates made from natural fibres had higher specific strength values when the results were normalis...

Abstract This paper is part of a series of fractographic studies on fiber-reinforced polymer composites submitted to compression, which attempts to fill the gap in the composite failure analysis. Here, the effect of the hygrothermal conditioning is assessed for composite laminates manufactured from a carbon fiber/epoxy resin prepregs, which used plain weave fiber arrangement. The laminate was trimmed into compression test specimens, according to the ASTM D3410 standard. After the test, the aspec...

Natural fibres are gaining more and more interest as reinforcing materials for polymer composite due to their environmental and economical benefits. Bast fibers is a prominent reinforcement for use in polymeric materials because of its low specific weight and cost, eco-friendly and abundantly available in nature. Several authors manifest the cellulosic fibers based polymeric composites as advantageously used in automobile industries and structural applications, but certain problems have been ass...

Abstract The purpose of this study is to investigate the mechanical feasibility of a hybrid Glass/Flax/Epoxy composite material for bone fracture fixation such as fracture plates. These hybrid composite plates have a sandwich structure in which the outer layers are made of Glass/Epoxy and the core from Flax/Epoxy. This configuration resulted in a unique structure compared to prior composites proposed for similar clinical applications. In order to evaluate the mechanical properties of this hybrid...

Abstract This work focuses on the effect of strain rate and fibre rotation on the in-plane shear properties of composite laminates. The effect of fibre rotation on the measured shear properties, was for the first time experimentally quantified with the comparison between compression and tension tests of the ±45° laminate samples. Significant increase of shear strength and decrease of final failure strain was observed with the increase in strain rate from 5e-4 1/s to 1300 1/s. The nonlinear shear...
