Abstract

Natural fibers characterized by sustainability have gained a considerable attention in recent years due to their advantages of environmental acceptability and commercial viability.as we know the fibers are strong and stiff relative to the matrix. In recent time natural fibers have been employed to use with plastics. the availability of natural fibers in India such as coir, jute, sisal, bagasse, bamboo, hemp, banana etc. gives more attention to the development of natural fiber composites to explore new application avenues .natural fibers are well suited for making automobile parts and they can be used as wood substitutes in construction sector. Natural fiber reinforced composites are taking attention due to low density, ease of separation, low cost and bio degradability. This present thesis aims at studying the mechanical behaviour of natural fiber composites of jute and bagasse with matrix as epoxy resin separately is compared with hybrid composite of jute and bagasse with epoxy resin as matrix were manufactured using hand layup method by weight fractions of fiber and matrix was kept at 30%-70%. Specimens were cut according to the ASTM standards for different experiments such as tension, bending, impact and hardness are prepared and tests were performed.
