Abstract
Natural fibre-reinforced polymer composite have elevated inordinate attention and concern among researchers/engineers in recent years due to better mechanical properties, acoustic features and biodegradability. The present study surveys the research work published in the field of polymer composite with reference to material used, processing of fibres, fabrication technique, characterization and numerical analysis. Based on literature review of various aspects in developing polymer composite materials, it is observed that extensive work has been done related to natural fibre monologue structure, synthetic fibre monologue structure and sandwich structure. Aforementioned facts reveal that there is a further scope to develop suitable hybrid combination for making better FRP composite to utilize the properties of both natural and synthetic fibre. The behaviour under flexural, impact and fatigue loading of laminated polymer composite are the main areas of interest of researchers to develop environmental friendly, low cost, high strength- stiffness and light weight composite. Furthermore, it is observed that there is scope for enhancement of hydrophobic property of natural fibres in composite through chemical/physical treatment for better fibre–matrix interface. Addition of carbon Nano-tube particles have high potential for improvement of mechanical properties. Thermal and acoustic behaviour are necessary to investigate for new range of applications.
