Variability of the mechanical properties among flax fiber bundles and strands

Abstract : This work analyzes the variability of the mechanical properties of flax fiber bundles and strands (a strand is the set of the bundles issuing from the same stem). A first remarkable result is that to obtain average values with good precisions about twenty randomly selected strands are sufficient. Moreover a comparative study of the fracture properties of bundles issued from different strands leads to the assumption that each stem is particular with special properties. A more detailed study shows that correlations exist between the sections of the strands and their mechanical properties. These trends are similar to those reported for unit fibers.
