This paper reviews the tensile properties of natural fiber reinforced polymer composite materials (both thermoplastics and thermosets).
First insights into a 3D-printed composite of Portland cement paste and reinforcing short fibers, resulting in novel materials that exhibit high flexural and compressive strength.
In recent times, non-metallic fibres have been intensively investigated and some of them used for construction of bridges.
The research paper discusses the tests conducted on single- and double-span concrete slabs longitudinally reinforced with BFRP rebar.
From the results it is concluded that addition of basalt fibers at an optimum content to the geopolymer concrete can increase flexural strength.
Based on the obtained FEM results, basalt-epoxy blades satisfy the design and structural integrity requirements for a wind turbine of 35 kW of energy production.
Basalt is a solid, compact igneous rock which is formed when volcanic lava cools adequately to solidify, covering many parts of the Globe.
The research paper reveals the information about novel basalt fiber-reinforced ABS-plastic to be used for 3D-printing on Mars.
he objective was to study the effect of surface modifications and mechanical properties when tensile test and hardness test was performed on the fibre.
Globally, Continuous basalt fiber manufacturing is valued at around $100 million and expected to double in the coming decade.
