Effect of Mechanical Properties of Composites of Teak Wood & Tamarind Kernel as Reinforced Particulates with Polyester Resin

V. Alekhya, S.C. Sireesha


Now-a-days many of the scientists/researchers are focusing on the natural fibers due to their inherent to replace synthetic fiber in many of the initial applications & unique properties .Natural fiber, particulates have good mechanical properties compared to synthetic fibers. The natural fibers as bio-degradable. In this experiment work has done on effect of mechanical properties of composites of teak wood & tamarind kernel as reinforced particulates with polyester resin. The properties of polyesters offer simplicity of dealing with, dimensional solidness & great compound protection & electrical properties, coming to teak wood tidy they are dimensional dependability, common toughness, dampness content shows outer impacts. In this work to analyze their mechanical behavior of different type of combination of composite material, with different tests such as tensile test, hardness test & flexural bend test. Finally it is reported that more value in the combination of tamarind dust on flexural bend test. Coming to hardness test it reported more value in teak wood dust & at last in tensile test it varies at different combinations.
