Abstract: The experimentally perceived tensile characters (tensile strength and tensile modulus) of Prosopis juliflora fiber reinforced phenol formaldehyde composites with different fiber aspect ratios (FAR) and fiber loadings (FL) have been fabricated and compared with the prevailing reinforcement theories. This analysis illustrates that the most favorable fiber aspect ratio and fiber loading of Prosopis Juliflora Fiber reinforced PF composites. FAR136 and 20 weight% of fiber loading were found as good combination to attain better bonding with superior mechanical characteristics in the Phenol Formaldehyde polymer matrix. In this study, an evaluation is made between theoretical models and experimental data. Theoretical models like parallel and series, Halpin-Tsai and modified Halpin-Tsai have been trying to fit the experimental data.
