Abstract: Influence of nature of weaving pattern and intra-ply hybridization of natural fibers on dynamic mechanical and free vibration characteristics of woven banana/jute polyester composite has been investigated. Results revealed that basket-type composite has better dynamic properties due to uniform stress distribution in both warp and weft directions. Warp jute fiber and weft banana fiber (WJWB) and both warp and weft banana and jute fiber (WAWBJ) intra-ply hybrid composites have better dynamic mechanical behavior as relatively stronger fiber is oriented along the loading direction. Experimental modal analysis carried out on beam-like samples revealed that warp and weft banana and jute fiber intra-ply hybrid composite has better natural frequencies while huckaback woven and warp banana fiber and weft jute fiber composites have better modal damping factors.
