Effect of hemp fibre morphology on the mechanical properties of vegetal fibre composite material

The hemp fibres present specific fibre morphology and a complex non homogeneous cross section which changes in function of the location along the fibre length. Thus the mechanical properties of hemp fibres request a specific characterization method. In this study, firstly, a digital treatment method was developed allowing to consider different geometrical modelling methods: homogeneous or non-homogenous cross section, average global cross section, and cross section measured at the rupture location, including a 3D CAD model reconstruction of the fibre.
