Wood versus Plant Fibers: Similarities and Differences in Composite Applications

Figure 8

Hygroexpansion of unidirectional hemp fiber/polyethylene terephthalate composites as function of the fiber volume fraction. Hygroexpansion was measured in the longitudinal and transverse directions, and at the humidities of 85 and 100% RH, with respect to a reference humidity of 65% RH. Lines are calculated by micromechanical models. Modified from [80].
