Notwithstanding the downside of flax fibres against conventional fibres in terms of mechanical properties, their inherent viscoelastic characteristics bring an advantage of high vibration damping property. Evaluating the behaviour of flax fibre composites, it is also required to have an understanding of such composite material’s response to dynamic loads as structures are exposed not only to static loads but also short duration loads.

Abstract

Considerable attention has been devoted to the integration of natural-derived composites into the composite market. In this regard flax fibre can be considered as the most promising natural reinforcement among other natural fibres due to its high specific mechanical properties although these properties fall behind the mechanical properties of conventional fibres. Notwithstanding the downside of flax fibres against conventional fibres in terms of mechanical properties, their inherent viscoelastic characteristics bring an advantage of high vibration damping property. Evaluating the behaviour of flax fibre composites, it is also required to have an understanding of such composite material’s response to dynamic loads as structures are exposed not only to static loads but also short duration loads. This paper presents an experimental methodology for investigating the transient response of flax and glass fibre reinforced composites, as well as hybrid of the two, to impulsive loads.
