FABRICATION AND ANALYSIS OF INDUSTRIAL WORKERS SAFETY HELMET USING NATURAL FIBERS 2018-28-0049

This study deals with the preparation of composites by using matrix method in which good interfacial adhesion is generated by a combination of fiber modification and hand layup methods. The objectives of this experiment are to evaluate the suitability of producing natural fiber composites using luffa fiber, palm fiber and bamboo fiber and to fabricate the safety helmet by combining these three fibers. Initially these fibers were treated in order to improve resin fiber interfacial bonding. Generally, composites that contain treated fiber have a higher tensile modulus and greater flexural modulus than do untreated fiber composites. Here using 40% fibers and 60% matrix orientation method for composite fibers with epoxy resin to check tensile strength, flexural strength, impact strength to give greater strength composite materials. It was observed that the effects of reinforcing epoxy resin matrix with the fibers caused the composites to be more flexible and easily deform due to high strain values and reduction of high resonant amplitude. In the present study, an attempt has been made to reinforce, epoxy resin matrix with best proportion of these natural fibers and to characterize its mechanical performances to evaluate their suitability for helmet applications.
