A Review on Tensile and Flexural Properties of Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites

  title={A Review on Tensile and Flexural Properties of Fiber-Reinforced Polymer Composites},
  author={Myisha A. Chowdhury and Shafiul Hossain},
: Fiber-reinforced polymer composites have large applications in different important sectors like aerospace engineering biomedical engineering, constructions because of their light-weight and high strength. Tensile and flexural properties are the two ultimate factors for measuring the strength of materials. The role of fiber content, length, and their orientations on these two properties are explored in this study. Different chemical modifications to improve the surface property of fiber/matrix…
