Determination of mechanical properties of fibers of Bambusa Vulgaris to use in bamboo mat board

Lena Mora Rodríguez, Emilio Álvarez García, Jorge Hernández González


At the present time a world tendency exists to the use of the natural fibers as reinforcement material in composite materials. In such a sense presently work you to carry out an analogical and experimental analysis to determine the behaviour of the mechanical properties of the bamboo fibers and in specific the resistance to the rupture, the module of Elasticity and the poisson coefficient. Moreover, it is evaluate the influence of the temperature, the pressure and the time on the percent of humidity lost and about the thickness of the bamboo mat board. Finally one has that for their properties and characteristic the bamboo fiber is a natural fiber that may be an employee as reinforcement in Composite materials.
