Biobased composites: materials, properties and potential applications as wind turbine blade materials

B. Madsen, P. Brøndsted and T. Løgstrup Andersen,     Technical University of Denmark, Denmark

Abstract:

This chapter about biobased composites starts by presenting the most promising types of cellulose fibres; their properties, processing and preforms for composites, together with an introduction to biobased matrix materials. The chapter then presents the typical mechanical properties of biobased composites, based on examples of composites with different fibre/matrix combinations, followed by a case study of the stiffness and specific stiffness of cellulose fibre composites vs glass fibre composites using micromechanical model calculations. ...
