Structure -- Property Relation of Epoxy Resin with Fique Fibers: Dynamic Behavior using Split-Hopkinson Pressure Bar and Charpy Tests
The main objective of this work is to study polymer matrix composites from epoxy resin reinforced with fique natural fibers. Laminate composite samples with 0.0, 4.0 and 8.0 wt% of fibers in a fabric configuration were fabricated. No further treatment was used in order to make the process as simple and inexpensive as possible for diverse structural applications. Microstructural characterization was analyzed by scanning electron microscopy. Impact tests evaluated by Charpy and Split-Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) tests were also conducted.
