Hydrothermal ageing of jute-glass fibre hybrid composites — an acousto-ultrasonic study

  • 77 Accesses

Abstract

Studies of damage under hydrothermal ageing incurred by random fibre glass-reinforced laminates and jute-glass fibre hybrid composites have been carried out using an acoustoultrasonic technique. It is shown that the “stress wave factor” is a sensitive indicator of flexural strength reduction due to hydrothermal effects in both these composites. The incorporation of jute into glass fibre composites brings about a reduction in the rate of degradation of these composites. The treatment of jute with a silane coupling agent marginally improves the strength properties of the hybrids.
