One of the major hurdles to widespread acceptance of natural fibre composites is a lack of information about their mechanical properties and failure mechanisms contained in a single source. This book addresses the problem. It examines the properties of natural fibre composites and the methods by which they fail. It provides an overview of the different types of natural fibre composite and case studies showing their applications. The mechanical properties of both thermoplastic and thermoset matrix composites are covered along with their long term performance. Readers will gain a better understanding of how natural fibre composites can be used as substitutes for conventionally reinforced composites.
