Effectiveness of polypropylene fibers on impact and shrinkage cracking behavior of adobe mixes
Earth has been used as construction material for thousands of years and still at present earthen shelters are widely inhabited due to their comfort and low environmental impacts. Despite their advantages, earthen materials ...
Production and Evaluation of Recycled Polymers from Acai Fibers
(Univ Fed Sao Carlos, Dept Engenharia MaterialsSao CarlosBrasil, 2010)
Preparation of polypropylene composites with high levels of coir short fiber for use in products by injection
The main objective of this investigation was to study the properties of composites of polypropylene (PP) containing different proportions (20, 40 and 60% wt%) of coir short fiber (natural vegetable fiber) without treatment ...
Properties of gypsum composites containing vermiculite and polypropylene fibers: Numerical and experimental results
(Energy and Buildings, 2018)
Polypropylene composites manufactured from recycled carbon fibers from aeronautic materials waste
Carbon fiber composites are used in several industries such as, aerospace, automotive, civil engineering, sports goods and technical applications due to its low-weight, strength and stiffness. However, the technology of ...
Natural fiber suspensions in thermoplastic polymers. I. analysis of fiber damage during processing
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2007-02)
The final properties of the composites materials are strongly dependent on the residual aspect ratio, orientation, and distribution of the fibers, which are determined by the processing conditions. Present work is a ...
Experimental characterization of the post-cracking response in Hybrid Steel/Polypropylene Fiber-Reinforced Concrete
This paper presents and discusses the results of experimental tests performed on concrete specimens internally reinforced with polypropylene and steel fibers. Specifically, samples of five mixtures (plus a reference plain ...
Hybrid Reinforcement of Sisal and Polypropylene Fibers in Cement-Based Composites
(ASCE-AMER SOC CIVIL ENGINEERS, 2011)
Several studies using vegetable fibers as the exclusive reinforcement in fiber-cement composites have shown acceptable mechanical performance at the first ages. However, after the exposure to accelerated aging tests, these ...
