1. Development and characterisation of bast and basalt fibre hybrid polymer composites for automotive applications
Sammanfattning : Natural fibres such as kenaf, hemp, and flax, also known as bast fibres, offer several benefits such as low density, low cost, carbon dioxide neutrality, sustainability and renewability. In Europe, their composites are used intensively by almost all car manufacturers, mostly in interior applications. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The natural defects present in timber are the source of large variations in mechanical properties. This drawback has been partially counteracted with the use of Engineered Wood Products EWP (glulam, composite I-beam, parallel strand lumber, etc.) instead of solid wood. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Planar random fibre composite materials based on melamine-formaldehyde (MF), one of the hardest and stiffest isotropic polymers that is known, have been developed recently on an industrial scale. In this thesis the mechanical behaviour of these materials is systematically investigated for the first time. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : As a material, timber offers a wide range of alternatives in terms of structural applications. The natural defects present in timber are, however, the source of large variations in mechanical properties. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In our efforts to create a more sustainable society, several researchers have tried to prepare composites from renewable materials in recent years. The use of natural fibres for reinforcement of composites has been relatively well studied. LÄS MER
