Abstract

The growing attention on environmental issues has led to a recent research interest in eco-sustainable and renewable materials, among which biocomposites play an important role. Biocomposites are materials consisting of a matrix with low environmental impact or renewable, reinforced with natural fibres. Several research activities reported in literature, deal mainly with the static mechanical properties. Just few works are instead devoted to the assessment of their dynamic properties, such as fatigue strength, impact strength, etc. In order to give a contribution to the knowledge of the impact behaviour of green epoxy matrix biocomposites reinforced with agave fibres, in this paper a systematic study is carried out to evaluate the impact strength of different laminates (single layer, cross-ply, quasi-isotropic), by low velocity impact test. The various selected laminates, allowed to assess the effects of the main influence parameters as fibre distribution (unidirectional and random), fibre concentration and lay-up.
