Tropical Natural Fibre Composites: Properties, Manufacture by Mohd Sapuan Salit

By Mohd Sapuan Salit

This publication covers the several facets of tropical common fibre composites in components comparable to houses, layout and research, production strategies, fabric choice of kenaf, oil palm, sugar palm, pineapple leaf, coconut, sugarcane and banana dependent fibre composites. very important houses corresponding to mechanical and thermal of usual fibres to boot their composites are awarded. A learn at the composite fibre-matrix interface is highlighted including the layout procedure and research of goods from average fibre composites. an summary at the production ideas (conventionally used to provide fibre glass fibre composites) similar to pultrusion and filament winding is defined to provide typical fibre composites. the significance of fabric choice method to acquire the main optimal fabrics for program in engineering parts from traditional fibre composites is roofed with a robust specialize in the concurrent engineering for ordinary fibre composites.
