Abstract: This work is done in order to determine the influence of flyash on mechanical properties and fracture analysis. The carbon (ash) particles independently integrated with coir fiber polymer composites. The test samples were manufactured with different dimensions of coir fiber such as the powder’s size, content and mesh size. Tension, compression, impact and flexural tests are carried out in the composite materials prepared according to the ASTM techniques. Using SEM photos, the fracture faces are analyzed. It was inferred from the final results that ash powder composite provides good flexural and tensile strength than without ash powder composite, while ash powder composite material provides good impact strength and compressive strength with increase in content of ash particles.
Keywords: Ash Particles, SEM, Mechanical Properties, Mesh Size.
