Mechanical Behaviour of Palm Seed Shell Fiber Reinforced Polymer Composites: Tensile, Flexural and Impact Properties
This study focuses on the effective utilization of natural fibers for the structural and non structural applications. Agricultural wastes can be used to prepare fiber reinforced polymer composites for commercial use. The objective is to fabricate a novel palm shell fiber reinforce epoxy polymer composites with different weight fractions. The different formulations were fabricated using hand layup method to investigate the mechanical properties of the polymer composites. The mechanical properties like Tensile, flexural and Impact properties were investigated on the fabricated specimen as per the ASTM standards. It has been reported that 60 wt% of Epoxy and 40 wt% of reinforcement showed better mechanical properties. It shows the better interfacial bonding increases due to the increase of fiber content. Better tensile, flexural and impact strength is achieved with specimen C that shows good adhesion of fibers over the matrix.
