Integration of Sugarcane Bagasse and Waste Plastic Materials for Aeronautical Applications
The main objective of this project is to produce a composite using waste and non-biodegradable materials which can be utilized for many applications such as parcel shelves, cabin linings, electrical appliances, window covers etc. Due to high fuel prices, the operation management cost of the aircraft industry has gone high. So, to minimize the cost of management by reducing weight of aircraft components, we can use low-cost composite material developed by using waste and non-biodegradable materials. This work describes the hand lay-up process of the biodegradable & non-biodegradable composite using bagasse fibers, plastic fibers, and the polymer matrix, with different composition of fiber matrix combination and different testing such as tensile, compressive, impact, hardness and vibration testing has been conducted to study the characteristics of developed composite material. As it is an eco-friendly approach, this will in turn help us to clean our earth to some extent. This obtained product has good strength to weight ratio, tensile strength, compressive strength, Impact strength, electric resistance, low cost & ease of fabrication etc.
