Abstract
Natural fiber based composites are becoming important materials in engineering fields. The composites are having enormous amount of advantages due to light weight, high strength to weight ratio and corrosion resistance. The endeavor of this project is to find out the Structural properties of newly identified Pandanus fiber (PF) and coconut bunch fiber (CF) composites which are consists of reinforced epoxy with Al2O3 Nano particles. The Pandanus fiber was extracted from the stem of screw pine tree by the manual water treatment process. Coconut bunch fiber was extracted from coconut bunch. The panels were fabricated by compression molding method with varying of weight percentage and length of fiber and compared with (NCF, NPF) & without Al2O3 Nano particles (CF, PF). Tensile, Compression strength, Impact energy, Hardness and Natural frequency of the composites were determined and plotted. The result value tends to increase strength of the panel with addition of Nano-particles compared without Nano-particles. The Pandanus fiber was much strong and reliable compared to the Coconut Bunch fibers. The most of the industries starts research of Natural fibers due to Cheep, recyclable and Bio-degradable materials.
