Effects of Resistance Welding on the Failure Strength Properties of Natural Fiber Reinforced Composite

Article Preview

This research is concerned with a study of failure strength of natural fiber composite. Tensile-shear tests were carried out with the single-lap resistance welded joined specimens consisting of composite materials. Composite materials were manufactured using the polyester as a matrix and bamboo natural fiber layer as a reinforcement. Two types of specimen with different reinforcement positions were tested to evaluate the failure strength of natural fiber reinforced composite resistance welded joined specimens. The test results were presented by tensile-shear strength. The failure mechanism was discussed in order to explain the lower tensile-shear strength of composite and position of bamboo natural fiber layer on the failure strength properties were explained
