The AAM Natural fiber carefully extracted by using mechanical decortications method. The fibers were alkali treated (NaOH solution) with different soaking period. The physical, chemical and mechanical properties of the AAM fiber calculated as per ASTM method. The various test specimens according to the ASTM standards were tested to evaluate physical, mechanical, TGA and water absorption behavior of fiber, water absorption of composites (Boiled and cold) and tribological properties. The surface morphology of the failure specimens also analyzed.Testing methods and procedure were detailed for easy understanding of the readers.
I have 10 years of teaching experience out of which about 6 years in Research. In my research, I have developed a Natural fiber Reinforced Polymer Matrix Biodegradable Composite materials to reduce the environmental pollutants. I have published 20 research papers in various Journals and Conferences.Become a life member of 10 professional bodies.
