Recent research trend in natural-fibre composites

Lau, Alan K. T. and Ho, Mabel M. P. (2011) Recent research trend in natural-fibre composites. JEC Composites (67). pp. 50-52. ISSN 1639-965X

Abstract

Since the mid 50’s, interest in research and engineering has been shifting from traditional monolithic materials to fibre-reinforced polymer-based materials due to their unique advantages of high strength-to-weight ratio, non-corrosive properties and high fracture toughness for aerospace and military applications.
