Abstract

Sandwich panels are the composite materials consist of a core at the centre covered by skin material on the upper and lower surface of the core. Sandwich structures have recently been investigated for their lightweight and multifunctional Characteristics, as well as their resistance to blast. This paper deals with increment of strength to weight ratio in natural fiber composites. For this a sandwich panel is developed using Coir fiber and polyester resin to prepare skin material and aluminium honeycomb is used as core in the panel. In this work, coir composites are developed and their mechanical properties are evaluated. The results indicate that coir can be used as a potential reinforcing material for many structural and non-structural applications.
