ABSTRACT

The composite material is a single structure composed of two or more materials with identifiable interfaces at multi-scales to get properties that are superior to those of its constituents. Composites are designed to get unique mechanical properties and superior performance characteristics that are not possible with any of its component material alone. Experimental work was done at Textile Physics Division of BJRI, Bangladesh, in 2019 for the manufacture of jute, cotton and glass fire reinforced composite corrugated sheet suitable for roofing in poultry and rural housing. For the investigation jute, cotton and glass fibre were used like as reinforcing material and polyester resin were used like as matrix material. This paper reports the findings of an experimental investigation conducted on the engineering properties of jute, cotton and glass fibre reinforced composite corrugated sheet. Different fabric design and volume fractions were used as reinforcement for the corrugated sheet to determine the physical, mechanical and thermal properties of the composite. The results of this investigation have shown the feasibility of the use of jute fibre for producing low-cost housing materials.
