Abstract : Nowadays polymer matrix composites are widely used in the areas of automotive, medical, aircraft and aerospace industries. Since, chemically surface modified saw dust with jute fiber reinforced composites play vital role in developing lightweight structural materials in many engineering industries. This study focuses on utilizingchemically surface modified saw dust with jute fiberas reinforcement filler loading malic acid treated and un treated (10 %,20% and 30%) and fiber loading (3-layer jute fiber) in epoxy resin. This composite was fabricated using hand lay-up process. The influence of filler volume fraction and fiber weight fraction on the fracture toughness properties of treated / untreated modified saw dust with jute fiber/filler was studied initially. Test results revealed that the composite 20-volume fraction malic acid treated saw dust with 3-layer jute fiber composite has better fracture properties as compared with other specimens.
