Abstract: Abstract The effects of short carbon fibers on static and dynamic properties of thermoplastic elastomeric blends of natural rubber (NR) and high density polyethylene (HDPE) have been studied. Both mechanical and dynamic properties are dependent on fiber concentration. The fiber aspect ratio ranges from 20 to 30. Adhesion between fiber and matrix is evident from the SEM photomicrographs of the failed composites and from variation of relative damping properties. Fiber orientation occurring during processing cau…
