Composite Made from Corn Husk Fibre and Post-Used Styrofoam for Fuse Deposition Modelling

This project focuses on Finite Element Analysis Study on Lattice Structure Fabricated using Corn Husk Fibre Reinforced Recycle Polystyrene Composite.

This research is focus on the study of lattice structure fabricated using corn husk fibre reinforced with recycled polystyrene composite using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) method. The composite material is made from corn husk fibre and post-used styrofoam. The lattice structural of the model is created using CREO software. Then, the simulation study of lattice structural integrity of this composite material is done by using ANSYS software. This study only focus on the triangular prism and hexagonal prism for difference shape of the lattice structural. The analysis also focuses on difference thickness of each prism ranging from 2 mm, 2.2 mm, 2.4 mm, where the dimension of the specimen is 8 mm x 8 mm x 5 mm. The results found the lattice structure made from this composite material with triangular prism having overall better mechanical strength then hexagonal prism.
