Title: Application of natural fibre composites in construction: a research case study
Authors: Van Wyk, L
Keywords: Construction industry
Mechanical properties
Construction theory
Natural fibre composition
Issue Date: May-2007
Citation: Van Wyk, L. 2007. Application of natural fibre composites in construction: a research case study. Sixth International Conference on Composite Science and Technology, ICCST/6, Durban, South Africa, 22-24 January, 2007, 14p
Abstract: The paper reviews the potential application of NFC in construction, identifies the prerequisite mechanical properties for equivalency, and prepares the targeted values for mechanical properties of NFC in construction. The mechanical properties required were Young’s Modulus, compressive strength, tensile strength, impact resistance Izod, flexural strength and shear strength. The paper provides an overview of the procedures followed to establish the target values for the identified mechanical properties
