Abstract

This paper presents a review and analysis of failure detection methods of composites materials systems and development and application of a bamboo bicycle. The paper begins by presenting the current market condition of composites materials and in particular, carbon fibre and carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRF). The work proceeds to investigate the failure detection methods that have been applied to develop a carbon fibre bicycle with reference to a bamboo bicycle.
