A review of Mechanical Properties of Jute-glass and Luffa-glass fiber reinforced epoxy hybrid composites

pdf PDF


In this work comparison of the various mechanical properties such as tensile strength, flexural strength, and interlaminar shear strength of distinctive natural fibers of Jute-glass and Luffa-glass fibers reinforced with epoxy hybrid composites is evaluated. For this purpose eight distinctive type laminates have been used. The values of Tensile, Flexural Properties and Inter laminar shear strength of the jute-glass and luffa-glass fiber epoxy hybrid composites are good for stacking sequence of GJJG- jute glass and GLLG.
