Title
Mechanical property analysis of carbon-bamboo fiber-reinforced montmorillonite nanocomposite
Author
Abstract
The nanocomposites were made using a controlled mixing and curing process, and their enhanced mechanical performance and sustainability have drawn attention recently. The study focuses on the improvement of mechanical properties of a novel nanocomposite material made of montmorillonite nanoparticles and carbon-bamboo fiber reinforcement. To investigate the mechanical properties of the nanocomposites, they were tested to know their tensile, flexural, impact, and hardness properties. The study found that the mechanical properties of the nanocomposites, such as tensile strength, flexural modulus, and impact resistance, were significantly improved by the addition of montmorillonite nanoparticles. Furthermore, demonstrated to be more resilient to abrasion and wear was the hardness. These results suggest possible applications for carbon-bamboo fiber-reinforced montmorillonite nanocomposites in the automotive, aerospace, and building industries. The enhanced mechanical properties of these nanocomposites may result in lighter, more resilient products, promoting resource efficiency and sustainability. The results show that adding montmorillonite significantly increases the mechanical strength of composites; carbon fiber outperforms bamboo fiber, and laminates made of alternating carbon and bamboo fibers outperform both.
