Abstract
Palsule equation for tensile Modulus of short fibre reinforced polymer composites has been derived as the first equation that accounts for the aspect ratio of reinforcer as follows: Ec=1/8(EmVm+EfVf)+1/4 [(Ef+lambdaEm)+lambdaVf(Ef-EEm) divided by (Ef+lambdaEm)-psiVf(Ef-Em)]Em. Palsule equation has been validated by a comparison of the modulus of several short fibre reinforced polymer composites predicted by Palsule equation with their literature reported experimentally measured modulus values indicating that values predicted by Palsule equation are comparable with literature reported experimentally measured tensile modulus. 14 Refs.
