Abstract

The idea of use of banana fiber in the sandwich structure are generated and researched as to assist environment sustainability.In this study,the mechanical strength of the banana pseudo-stem FRP that act as the skin material for a sandwich structure are studied.The common core used is a cross-linked PVC foam core with the polyester resin as their binder.The goal is on the focus of strength,cost and the weight of Banana FRP sandwich structure compared with the glass fiber skin material (synthetic fiber).The raw banana fiber are extracted,reinforced with the polyester resin,and then embedded with core material in fabrication process of specimens.The flexural test are carried out to study the flexural behavior of the banana FRP of sandwich structure.The main results of the bending test are load-extension and the shear core stress.The results of sandwich with the skin made banana FRP and PVC foam core presented considered high mechanical values such as maximum load.In term of cost,banana FRP sandwich panel gives nearly 50% cost reduction from the synthetic sandwich panel.This valuable results has proven the ability of the banana fiber to be used in the sandwich structure construction thus will gives the huge advantages to the various industry such as shipbuilding (boat) and aerospace.
