A Comprehensive Study on Fracture of Natural Fibre Composites
Author Name : Prateek Sheokand
Fracture toughness of natural jute fibre composite is almost similar to the glass fibre reinforced polymers (synthetic fibre). The fracture toughness (Kic) of composite sample is determined. The fractural behaviour of the surfaces is observed by SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) and it is observed that the prime factors of failure are fibre pull out, matrix de-bonding, fibre breakage and matrix cracking. In this paper, the author has studied about the fracture of natural fibre composites.
