Abstract:
ABSTRACT The use of natural fibers in polymer matrices is highly beneficial because the strength and toughness of these composites resulting are greater than those of the unreinforced plastics. Therefore an attempt is made to investigate the mechanical properties of composites. The main objective of present work is to investigate the mechanical properties of BANANA fiber polyester resin composites at different weight fractions and carbon fiber polyester resin composites at different weight fractions. Tested specimens of these composites were fabricated according to the standards using hand molding method. The developed composites were then tested to evaluate their Tensile, Bending and Impact properties. It was found that the increment in fiber content in composites increases the mechanical properties. The mechanical properties of BANANA fiber composites compared with CARBON fiber composites. Finally it was concluded that CARBON based composites exhibited better mechanical properties than BANANA based composites. Keywords: Carbon fiber, Banana fiber, Catalyst, Tensile properties, Flexural properties
