Authors(5) :-Syed Mazher Abbas Rizvi, Abhishek Dwivedi, Syed Shane Raza, Anshika Awasthi, Himanshu Gupta

Increasing concern about environment has made scientist and engineers very eager in their search for environmental friendly materials. So lot of research is going on today in the field of material science to develop newer materials. Natural fibres are getting much attention of researchers, engineers and scientists as reinforcement in the epoxy matrix to develop natural fibre reinforced epoxy composites. In the present work an attempt has been made to develop a systematic approach to evaluate and study the effect of process parameters on Thermal Analysis of coir and bagasse fiber reinforced epoxy based hybrid composites. The composite panel was fabricated usinghand lay-up method to the size of 300mmx200mmx10mm with various weight percentage of natural fibers namely coconut coir (5 wt %) and bagasse (45 wt %) combined with epoxy resin. The mechanical properties testing such as tensile, flexural and impact strength were carried out for the samples cut from the fabricated composite panel to the dimensions as per ASTM standard.
