Investigating the Influence of Bamboo Fiber Microstructure on Mechanical Response

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

This study examines how various conditions of microfibers affect mechanical response using finite element analysis. Understanding stresses and where they propagate under loadings is essential for use in a structural application. Additionally, understanding how moisture content affects the material will be a crucial takeaway. For future works, it will be beneficial to validate findings in a testing lab.
