Oil Palm Fibre and Nano-Silica Reinforced Epoxy Composite Material
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a study on tensile properties of Nano Silicon Carbide (n-SiC) and oilpalm fibre (OPF) reinforced epoxy composites. The dosage of n-SiC and OPF are limited to 0%, 1%,3% & 5% by mass of the total epoxy material. As a part of the research, experimental study is carriedout on n-SiC and OPF based epoxy composites to investigate the tensile strength of the compositematerial. The utilization of 1% n-SiC& 1% treated OPF shows an improvement in tensile strengthcompared to the pure epoxy. The experimental results are also compared with 3-D finite elementanalysis results and a good agreement is observed between the experimental and the finite elementresults.

Alamri, Hatem; Low, It Meng (2012)Three different approaches have been applied and investigated to enhance the thermal and mechanical properties of epoxy resin. Epoxy system reinforced with either recycled cellulose fibers (RCF) or nanosilicon carbide ...
Effect of water absorption on the mechanical properties of n-SiC filled recycled cellulose fibre reinforced epoxy eco-nanocompositesAlamri, Hatem; Low, It Meng (2012)The effect of the addition of n-SiC particles on water absorption of n-SiC reinforced RCF/epoxy eco-nanocomposites was studied. Results indicated that water uptake decreased as n-SiC content increased. This was also shown ...
