Experimental Research on the Fundamental Mechanical Properties of Basalt Fiber Reinforcement with Epoxy

To read the full article Peer-reviewed Article PDF image


The basalt fiber is becoming an alternative to glass fiber and carbon fiber due to its advantages like cost effectiveness, ecological safety and easy availability. The experimental investigation study of basalt fiber reinforced epoxy composites was conducted and their tensile, flexural and impact Strengths were analysed. Owing to the scarcities of information about their mechanical performances in present literature studies, this work was directed towards providing mechanical characterization of basalt-fiber reinforced epoxy composite, manufactured at various ratios such as 35:65, 40:60, 45:55 (Fiber: Resin). The composite laminates were prepared by mixing chopped strand basalt fiber and epoxy with proper cutting agents using open mouldings method. The specimen is prepared from composite laminates and the ASTM standards D3039, D790 and D256 were considered for analysing their mechanical properties such as tensile strength, flexural strength and impact strength respectively. The best suitable fiber resin ratio with respect to strength has been concluded as the result.
