Abstract

This report describes the study of fiber orientation effect on mechanical behavior of banana pseudostem fiber to optimize product strength. Composites were prepared using the hand lay-up method with three different fiber orientation which are 0°, 0°/90° and 90 ° respectively. The main purpose of this project is to find the best orientation of banana pseudostem fiber reinforced with polyester resin based on their mechanical properties. Natural fibers possess several advantages over synthetic fibers such as low density, appropriate stiffness and mechanical properties and also high disposability and renewability. Besides that, they are recyclable and biodegradable. This paper review some literatures and past documents regarding to the nature of the composite. In addition, this project described the method used to extract the banana pseudostem fiber and fabrication process of banana pseudostem fiber reinforced with polyester resin significantly. The samples were subjected to the mechanical testing such as tensile, flexural and compressive test. The specimen is prepared according to ASTM standards and the experiment has been carried out by using universal testing machine (UTM). The result are then analyzed and discussed.
