||Pan American Materials Congress: Materials for Infrastructure
||Colombian Natural Fibers for Structural Materials
||Henry A Colorado, Juan M Velez
|On-Site Speaker (Planned)
||Juan M Velez
This presentation is about the most significant natural fibers from Colombia and its use in structural applications. Fique, luffa, and coconut fibers are presented.
Characterization was conducted by Thermo Gravimetric Analysis, optical and Electron Microscopy, and X-ray diffraction. Some tests in cement based materials are presented with the corresponding materials characterization but also including flexural, porosity and density tests.
||Planned: Stand-alone book in which only your symposium’s papers would appear (indicate title in comments section below)
