Analysis of Mechanical Properties of Natural Fiber Composite Beam

6 pagesPublished: August 5, 2017

Abstract

Natural fiber composite materials are gradually becoming more popular due to light weight, low cost, bio degradability, easy to manufacture, lower environmental impact and less energy requirement for manufacturing. These properties of natural fiber make it suitable for automobile, aerospace and other industrial applications. In present study, analysis of mechanical properties like tensile strength, flexural strength, impact strength and Young’s modulus are carried out for various composites. Free vibration characteristics of natural fiber composite beams are also studied analysed. In addition to analytical study, finite element analysis also carried out using ANSYS. In this, the test specimens were modelled in accordance to experimental test specimen and model analysis is performed.

Keyphrases: ANSYS, composite material, Natural fiber, properties of composite
