Study on the Mechanical Properties of Jute/Carbon Hybrid Composites
Carbon fibers were used to lay lengthways into three lays in jute fiber needled mat and the same fiber volume content of jute fiber needled mat were fabricated. Those two mats and the lengthways carbon fibers reinforced vinyl resin composites were made by VARTM. We made a comparison of the hybrid reinforced composites between the test value and the theoretical value which was predicted by establishing tensile and bending math-model and their mechanical properties were analyzed. The results show that there was a certain line between the theoretical value and the test value of the hybrid composites, so we can establish the mixing ratio between jute fiber and carbon fiber during the engineering application. Although the use of carbon fibers had greatly enhanced the tensile properties of hybrid composite, whose tensile strength and tensile modulus increased by 85.94% and 30.99% respectively than that without carbons, the bending model can’t be changed a lot.
