Abstract

The modern dynamic world can’t imagine its development without bringing the concept of advancement in materials. Various researches are going on in this field to achieve the desired standard. Natural fiber reinforced with epoxy or other fibers have a huge affinity to replace the specimen made up of synthetic fiber. This is primarily because of the advantages like light weight, non-toxic, non-abrasive, easy availability, low cost, and biodegradable properties. The synthetic fibers have higher end of mechanical properties like tensile strength and tensile modulus however the specific mechanical properties like specific tensile modulus and other specific properties (properties/specific gravity) of natural fiber gives a satisfying result for specimens as compared to synthetic fiber-based specimens. The objective of the present study is to investigate the mechanical behavior of NATURAL CORNfiber reinforced with epoxy. NATURAL Cornfibers with different length and contents are reinforced in epoxy resin to fabricate a new material. The effect of fiber length and content on the mechanical behavior of CORN fiber is studied.
