Elasticity characteristics of a bio-load of renewable resources

Mustapha Jamoukh, Khalifa Mansouri, khalifa Mansouri, Bachir Salhi


The use of composite materials in industry has become more important thanks to the diversity of applications (aeronautics, rail, naval, automobile, etc.). The current concentration is moving towards bio-loading composites due to its environmental, economic and social benefits.

In this work, the numerical modeling by the finite element method has been able to confirm the experimental tests on a material of animal origin with parallel , 45 ° and at 90° in the direction of the fibers.

The results of the numerical simulation have illustrated that moving away from the parallel direction of fibers, the rigidity decreases and the behavior changes, which reinforces the hypotheses of the anisotropy of the material of animal origin studied and the high rigidity in the direction of the fibers due to the Keratin which gives it this behavior.
