Pineapple Natural Fibre Composite: Extraction, Mechanical Properties and Application
Anirudh Kohli, Manoj Mathad, Arun Patil, Anish Khan
In the present scenario, one out of every five persons on the globe suffers from osteoporosis and other bone-related disorders. This disease has no age restrictions and can strike anybody between the ages of 10 and 100, even newborns. The aforementioned concerns are the consequence of lifestyle disorders as well as damage to the body, which affects the concerned person’s body internally, resulting in the aforementioned issues as well as a shortage of Vitamin D. As a result, crutches and other rehabilitation items are in high demand. The above tools are often composed of wood, aluminium, or a steel/aluminum alloy, with Nylon 6/6 cuffs in the case of crutches. Many trees are felt as a result of the creation of such instruments. There is also a significant carbon footprint. As a result, an alternate material for the same purposes is required. Taking cues from the aforementioned issue and waste material in the sphere of residential trash, a PALF composite was identified due to its ease of availability as well as its superior quality and mechanical qualities.
