In this study the energy absorption response and load carrying capability of Bombyx mori (B. mori) natural silk fibre/Epoxy composite cylindrical tubes under an axial quasi-static compression was investigated. The composite tubes were prepared using mandrel assisted hand lay-up technique. The tube was fabricated using 24 layers of B. mori natural silk fibre, fully wetted with epoxy matrix. The tube was then cut into varied lengths of 50 mm, 80 mm, and 120 mm, respectively. Three specimens weredoi:10.4172/2165-8064.1000360 fatcat:jq74asljgbeylmflrao4ig5gsa
