Abstract

The utilization of bamboo fibres as reinforcement in composite materials has increased tremendously and has undergone high-tech revolution in recent years as a response to the increasing demand for developing sustainable, and recyclable materials. In order to apply the usage of raw materials like bamboo fibre which is stronger as well as can be utilized as a sustainable alternative for existing materials in the industry, we need to determine its mechanical properties for product design. In the present work experimental investigation has been carried out to study the tensile strength of bamboo skin and bamboo skin reinforced plastic (BSRP) composite. Bamboo Skin Strips have been used to reinforce epoxy resin. BSRP composites with unidirectional fibre strips have been made. High strength, low density, low production cost and ease of manufacturing make BSRP composite a commercially viable material for structural applications.
