Article
A novel hybrid composite material was developed through the compression moulding technique by adding bagasse fibre, stone-dust and 6063 aluminium alloy (Al-Mg-Si) particles to recycled high-density polyethylene (rHDPE) matrix. The bagasse fibres were treated while the stone-dust and 6063 aluminium alloy (Al-Mg-Si) particles were sieved to particle...
Article
The demand for durable and sustainable eco-friendly materials in recent times has caused many researchers to consider the use of plant fibers in composite development. In this research, the suitability of treated pawpaw fiber as a substitute for glass fiber was considered. The pawpaw fiber was extracted from the plant stem by dew retting and treate...

In this study, wear resistance and some selected physical properties of pawpaw-glass fiber hybrid reinforced epoxy composites were investigated. Two different layers of pawpaw stem-linear and network structures-were extracted and chemically modified. Hybrid reinforced composites were developed comparatively from the two fiber structures and glass f...

High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) matrix composites reinforced with chitosan particles were developed by compression moulding technique. Chitosan particles extracted from deep sea squid with 90% deacetylation, bulk density of 0.3 g/cm³ and particle size of 90 μm were used as reinforcement. HDPE and various weight fractions (2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 wt%) of...

The desire for environment-friendly materials and sustainability has brought a paradigm shift in the way engineers and the entire material research community thinks while attempting to develop new material, particularly for engineering applications. This study is carried out to underscore the suitability of particulate moringa oleifera fruit pod (M...

One of the main purposes of this research is to control environmental pollution and mitigate the impact of ignorantly discarded waste plastics in the environment through recycling of such plastics and using them to develop innovative composite materials. The present work investigates the influence of stone-dust particles and bagasse fiber on the me...

This study investigates polypropylene composites reinforced with yam stem particulate. Yam stem was obtained from the stem of harvested white yam tuber (Dioscorea spp.) and was treated with sodium hydroxide (NaOH). Both treated and untreated yam stem particles were pulverised to obtain particle sizes of ˂150 µm. The constituents were analysed by gr...
Article
In this work, the effects of iron (Fe) powder on strongly hypereutectic grey cast iron were experimentally verified. An in-stream inoculation technique was employed by producing grey cast irons. Chill wedges castings of type W, specified in the ASTM A367 of two different cooling moduli (CM) 0.11 cm and 0.35 cm (W1 and W3) were poured in sand mould...

This work investigates the influence of white cow hair as reinforcement in Cement/Waste paper pulp matrix for structural applications. Cow hairs as natural polymer, were sourced from an abattoir, and washed properly in clean water and sun dried for 5 days. Paper pulp was prepared by first soaking waste paper in water for 3 days, after which it was...

The current work report the design and fabrication of waste paper recycling machine that is efficient in tackling the challenges of waste paper disposal. The traditional methods of disposing waste papers have proven to be relatively expensive and unhealthy in many developing nations across the globe. Therefore, provision of low technological and co...

This study shows the effects of cassava starch as binder on the flexural strength and the water absorptivity properties of cassava starch bonded paper pulp based composites. Paper pulp was produced by chopping waste papers into smaller pieces and soaked in water for 2 weeks after which it was pulverized in the grinding machine to form paper pulp. T...

Question
I did a single fibre tensile test on some natural fibre samples, I was able to calculate the stress and strain using the data obtained from the test (i.e. Force and Elongation). However, I'm also interested in getting the young modulus of the fibre samples.
I'll greatly appreciate any assistance/information that could help.
Thanks
Question
I am trying to measure certain mechanical properties (Tensile Strength, Young Modulus and Interfacial Shear Strength) of selected natural fibres after chemical treatment with NaOH and KOH. I plan on using Universal Testing Machine measuring the tensile strength but I have no Idea where to get the cardboard mounting cards for specimen/fibre holding.
Question
We are trying to carry out surface modification (using alkali treatment) on selected natural fibres for use in cement matrix composites. However, some of our team members proposed using demineralized water for the treatment process in place of the commonly used distilled water. Several literatures have reported the use of distilled water in this process but as of today (29th June, 2021) and as much as I know, I have not seen/read any literature suggesting the use of demineralized water for this particular process.
Question
Surface sizing agents are mostly amphiphilic molecules, having both hydrophilic (water-loving) and hydrophobic (water-repelling) ends. The sizing agent adheres to substrate fibers and forms a film, with the hydrophilic tail facing the fiber and the hydrophobic tail facing outwards, resulting in a smooth finish that tends to be water-repellent.
