AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION ON MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF NATURAL HYBRID COMPOSITES
Dr. H. K. Shivanand*, Ambika, Jagadeesh C. and Kiran Raj H. N.
The present experimental study aims at learning the mechanical behaviour of natural hybrid reinforced jute composites. Samples of Jute-jute-Epoxy, Jute-carbon- Epoxy & jute-kevlar-epoxy hybrids were manufactured using hand layup method. Specimens were cut from the fabricated laminate according to the ASTM standards by water jet cutting machine for different experiments. Testing has been performed under Universal testing machine (UTM). Tensile strength & compression strength are observed and compared between the hybrids to perceive the change in strength.[Full Text Article]
