Effect of Jute Reinforcement Parameters on Mechanical Properties of Composite Structures



In this study, yarn finenesses that are used in the fabric preform, fabric preform density, and preform laying angle were taken as the three important variables, and then the range of the process parameter was also selected based on the pilot run. These selected process parameters and their three different ranges were selected to conduct the experiments. In pure jute composites, the measured properties of tensile strength, flexural strength, and compression strength were very high in the plain-woven composites. This is ascertained through verification of experiments by producing a new sample. Through signal-to-noise ratio analysis, the research found that an optimum flexural value of 85.6822 MPa is obtained by maintaining the process parameter pattern as A1B1C1.
