SINOPSIS

Short banana fiber-reinforced high-density polyethylene/poly (-caprolactone) skew composite plates have been prepared in the laboratory at different volume fractions of the fibers to determine the mechanical properties. Short cellulose-rich (>65%) banana fibers are treated by sodium hydroxide to increase its adhesiveness with the matrix. The effect of skew angle is observed in simple supported and clamped edge square and rectangular short banana fiber-reinforced high-density polyethylene/poly (-caprolactone) skew composite plates. The mechanical behavior of a square banana fiber-reinforced skew composite plate is different as compared to a rectangular banana fiber-reinforced skew composite plate. In order to study the static and dynamic response of a short banana fiber-reinforced skew composite plate at a uniformly distributed load, a multi-quadric radial basis function (MQRBF) method is applied. The skew angle and percentage of short banana fibers define the stiffness and damping behavior of a banana fiber-reinforced skew composite plate.
