Although the research and development in plant fibre composites is growing rapidly, these materials still require specific considerations before being adopted by industry in structural applications. One of the main issue is related to their durability. The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of hydrothermal ageing on the fatigue...
Avec les préoccupations environnementales actuelles, la recherche se tourne vers des solutions alternatives à l’utilisation de fibres synthétiques. Les fibres végétales apparaissent comme de bonnes candidates, avec de bonnes propriétés spécifiques. Cependant, leur faible durabilité constitue une problématique majeure, notamment lorsque les composit...
The development of composites based on vegetal fibers requires a good control of manufacturing process. The aim of this work is to determine the key parameters to produce high grade flax/epoxy unidirectional laminated composite by thermocompression. So, many processing parameters have been tested and ranked according to their influence on mechanica...
This papers aims to characterize the influence of moisture uptake on the mechanical behaviour of unidirectional flax fibre-reinforced epoxy laminates. Monotonic and cyclic tensile tests and free vibration characterization are carried out. Results show that UD flax-epoxy composites, when exposed to hygrothermal conditioning at 70°C and 85% RH, exhib...
