Study the Impact Property of Laminated Bamboo-Fibre Composite Filled with Cenosphere

Hemalata Jena, Mihir Ku. Pandit, and Arun Ku. Pradhan

Abstract—Cenosphere is a ceramic rich industrial waste produced during burning of coal in thermal power plants. The present study deals with the effect of this cenosphere as particulate fillers on impact strength of natural fibre composites. The natural fibre composite consists of bamboo fibre as reinforcement and epoxy as matrix. The bamboo fibre is treated with alkali to improve its surface properties. The conventional hand layup technique is used to prepare different composite specimens. 20 numbers of different composite specimens are prepared with varying number of laminae and filler content. The samples are analysed for their impact property to establish the effect of varying filler content and the number of laminae. It is found that the strength properties are greatly influenced by addition of this waste based ceramic filler.

Index Terms—Bamboo fibre, cenosphere, epoxy resin, impact strength.
