Short Review: Crashworthiness Characteristic of Natural Fiber Composite
In recent year, the use of natural fibers in composite plastics is gaining popularity in a variety of areas, and particularly the automotive industry. The application of natural fibers in polymers can provide many advantages compared other technologies and environmentally friendly. Among the automotive industry objectives is currently shifting to “green” technologies are reducing environment pollutions. Natural fibers are low-cost with highly specific properties and low density. Based on these factors, most developing countries begin using natural fibers to produce good quality product with effectively and economically. This review concentrated on types, material properties and the application of natural fiber composite for crashworthiness design.
