Conference paper


The natural fiber has many advantages such as light in weight, biodegradability, high strength, smaller elongation, fire resistance quality, moisture absorption quality and with promising mechanical strength. These fibers are growing towards eco-friendly technology, the present review discusses the research in the area of natural fibre composites with epoxy-based and analysis of mechanical properties. In this paper, mechanical properties of the composite material have been studied by considering different parameters like fiber content, fiber geometry, volume fraction, fiber size, properties of epoxy resin, and also orientation of fiber etc.
