    Towards the Development of Mechanical Systems Entirely Based on Natural Materials

    Fatima Zohra Elhilali, Hicham Fihri-Fassi*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.18, No.5, pp. 1285-1292, 2022, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2022.021803

    Abstract In order to mitigate the risks stemming from the utilization of mineral and synthetic organic substances, consensus exists in the literature that additional efforts should be devoted to the identification of adequate equivalent natural (ecological) materials. This work presents the outcomes of a preliminary study where the physical, mechanical, chemical and thermal properties of natural fibers have been considered. Initially, areca, and materials such as Moroccan doum and jute are considered. As a case study, a brake pad based on natural fibers is critically assessed. More >

    Particleboard Based on Rice Husk: Effect of Binder Content and Processing Conditions

    E. M. Ciannamea, D. C. Marin, R. A. Ruseckaite, P. M. Stefani*

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.5, No.5, pp. 357-362, 2017, DOI:10.7569/JRM.2017.634125

    Abstract In the development of materials based on renewable resources, the search for lignocellulosic substitutes for wood is one of the biggest challenges that academia and the particleboard and wood industries are facing. In this article, particleboards were processed using rice husk, an agricultural waste, as a substitute for wood. Rice husk without any further treatment was processed into particleboards using phenol-formaldehyde resin as binder. The effect of the processing parameters, pressure and binder content (BC) on the density, water absorption (WA), thickness swelling (TS), modulus of rupture (MOR) and modulus of elasticity (MOE) was analyzed. The performance of the obtained… More >
