Abstract

The composite materials constitute a substantial part of the technical materials, ranging from daily products such as door frames, window frames, panels, etc., to sophisticated products such as aircraft and space applications. They are widely used because of their high strength, low weight, easy to transport. Besides other features such as good corrosive resistance, low density, low thermal conductivity & amp; electrical conductivity, shock and vibration, energy absorption and finally esthetical colouring. The construction of the content can be tailored to specific application requirements and properties. Natural fiber offers a good renewable and biodegradable alternative to the most common synthetic reinforcement, i.e. glass fiber, having low cost and high mechanical properties. The rice husk (RH) has an agricultural residue material that has abundantly available because of the large production in India and abroad. Two different materials are compared for the production of the composite material i.e. Rice Husk (RH) and Polypropylene (PP), both available materials are considered in different composition and for each composition various parameters are evaluated to detect the usability of the composite. In present research the proposed methodology for the production of the composite material Graphical user Interface (GUI) has created using MATLAB and different outcomes are evaluated for different variables. Results shows that the mixture of RH in PP makes some changes in the properties of the material i.e., tensile strength, tensile modulus, flexural strength, and porosity under variation in composition & different values for the parameters are seen under process. On the basis of the application requirement the composition of the material posses good tensile strength at minimum RH in the composition.
