Abstract

In this presentation, I will give an overview of the natural fibre and sustainable composites research in the University of Nottingham’s Polymer Composite Group. Examples will include the manufacture and testing of a flax/polyester wind turbine blade, adding value to yak fibres and some early work on the material structure and mechanical properties of Tarantula silk.
