Assessing the Mechanical Performance Cannabis Sativa Composites – Reinforced with Long Time Dried Fibre

By Nadendla Srinivasababu


AbstractAn increase in environmental concern invites the development new eco friendly materials having light weight and superior mechanical performance. In this connection an attempt is made to manufacture composites reinforced with long time exposed dora hemp fibre at ambient conditions into the unsaturated polyester resin. The fabricated composite specimens are processed at P1, P2 and P3 conditions to assess their mechanical performance as per ASTM procedures. Out of all the composites investigated in the present work the dora hemp composites at P2 have shown good tensile and flexural properties, whereas the highest impact strength is achieved for the composites at P1. Hence this class of natural fibre composites is suitable for making automobile components after thorough investigation of necessary parameters
