Mechanical Properties, Abaca Fiber/Ramie, Epoxy


This present experimental study evaluated the on mechanical properties of Abaca, Ramie & Epoxy composites. Samples of different volume fractions of natural fiber reinforced composites were fabricated by Compression moulding technique and investigated their mechanical properties like tensile strength, Impact Strength and Water absorption test. Specimens were cut from the fabricated laminate according to the ASTM standards for different experiments. The work of this experimental study has been carried out to determine the mechanical properties due to the effect of Abaca and Ramie fibers orientations whose volume fraction are 17.5%, 35%, 65% .The results of this study indicate the orientation (0% , 35%,65%) volume fraction shows the better mechanical properties compare than(35%,0%,65%) & (17.5%,17.5%,65% ) fiber.
