Abstract: The objective of this Research work is to evaluate & analyze the flexural properties of developed composite specimen with polyurethane foam as matrix material & jute fiber as Reinforcement material. The first research experimentation shall be the flexural test is done as per the ASTM D 7264 standard to investigate the flexural properties of this combination of composite materials The main aim of this experimentation tests done are to investigate mechanical properties & strengths of newly developed jute reinforced composites to resist against the subjected tensile & bending loads under various conditions.
Keywords: Composites, Fiber, Jute, Polyurethane, Flexural Test.
