Abstract
Vegetable fibers are increasingly used in composites because of their good mechanical properties and low carbon footprint; composites made with vegetable fibers are considered greener and have mechanical and thermal applications. The effect of hemp and sugarcane bagasse fibers in the flexural behavior of cementitious matrix composites was studied. The overall behavior of the composite was studied through the contribution of its components. Tensile properties of the fibers were tested to determin...
