Kenaf Fiber Reinforced Bio-Composite: Its Processing and Determining the effective Properties of Composite. Major Professor: Dr.Thomas Fronk
The automotive and aerospace industries focus on using light weight and high strength materials. Thereby emerging an abundant use of composites in these sectors. Synthetic composites are not biodegradable and cause adverse effects on the environment. This is why we are looking for alternatives to these synthetic composites in terms of comparable stiffness and strength, cost effectiveness, and bio-biodegradability resulted in use of natural fibers (hemp, flax, kenaf etc) as reinforcement in composite.
