Assessing fibre surface treatment to improve the mechanical properties of natural fibre composites

K.L. Pickering,     Waikato University, New Zealand

Abstract:

An overview is presented of the influence of treatments conducted to improve interfacial strength on the mechanical properties of natural cellulose-based fibres. Methodology used for mechanical testing of natural fibres to obtain fibre strength and stiffness data is described, and the statistical treatment that can be applied to this type of data and the influence of treatment conducted to improve interfacial strength on the mechanical properties of natural fibre are explored.
