Abstract

In this paper, mechanical properties of bamboo strip and bamboo strip-glass fiber reinforced hybrid composite were investigated. Composites were manufactured by using hand lay-up technique and bamboo strips were made from locally available bamboo. Four layers of bamboo strip composite were manufactured and in case of hybrid composite, two layers of glass fiber one at the top and the other at the bottom were used with the aim was to observe the effect of adding glass fiber layer on the mechanical properties of bamboo strip composite. Tensile and flexural properties were studied and it was found that adding the glass fiber layer doesn’t have any significant effect on tensile properties but flexural strength and modulus have increased by 22.49 % and 15.02 % respectively.
