REINFORCING BY HYBRID FIBERS AND ITS EFFECT ON THERMAL CONDUCTING FOR POLYMERIC COMPOSITE MATERIAL

Abstract

The aims of this study is to investigation the effect of reinforcing with hybrid fibers included natural palms fibers and carbon fibers on thermal behavior of araldite resin(AY103) . This resin was reinforced with natural palms fibers is studied and compared it with another material reinforced by carbon fibers(°0)with (1.75g/cm3) density ,and then these two types of fibers combined together in same matrix to make a hybrid composite material and also calculated the range of it's thermal conductivity coefficient .Fourier equation used to calculate the thermal conductivity coefficient(k) to obtained composite material and. the results obtained from thermal conductivity test show that the thermal conducting value of natural palms fibers higher than reinforcing with carbon and hybrid fibers .
