Natural fiber reinforced unsaturated polyester composites - An approach on compression molding
This work has been performed at Tapetes Sao Carlos-Brazil with the cooperation of the DaimlerChrysler Research Center Team in Ulm - Germany. The objective of the present paper is to report the results obtained with natural ...
Unsaturated polyester based composites reinforced with curauá fiber - Preliminary studies
Curauá fiber processing characterization has been performed throughout the different processing steps. Unsaturated polyester has been used as matrix in the production of curauá reinforced composite samples. Compression ...
LYOCELL AND COTTON FIBERS AS REINFORCEMENTS FOR A THERMOSET POLYMER
(NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIV DEPT WOOD & PAPER SCIRALEIGH, 2012)
Cellulose fibers obtained from the textile industry (lyocell) were investigated as a potential reinforcement for thermoset phenolic matrices, to improve their mechanical properties. Textile cotton fibers were also considered. ...
Fiberglass-reinforced glulam beams: Mechanical properties and theoretical model
The glued-laminated lumber (glulam) technique is an efficient process for making rational use of wood. Fiber-Reinforced Polymers (FRPs) associated with glulam beams provide significant gains in terms of strength and ...
Damping behavior of hygrothermally conditioned carbon fiber/epoxy laminates
Carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites have been used in wide variety of applications including, aerospace, marine, sporting equipment as well as in the defense sector due to their outstanding properties at low density. ...
