This paper presents
experimental data using estimated approach to determine some mechanical
properties of epoxy matrix based composites. For this reason, the epoxy matrix was
combined with the powdered materials obtained from different parts of the
juniperus drupacea seeds. In order to obtain a homogeneous structure ultrasonic
mixing technique was preferred. The Taguchi method is an alternative way to
characterize complex composite structures, to come from above the problems and
to investigate the effects of test parameters-factors by performing a few
experiments. In the study, the L9 Taguchi orthogonal array has been preferred.
Based on some production conditions; bio-reinforcement material has lowered the
average hardness value to 4.22 and formed a more soft structure in addition to
improving the tensile strength value by 46% compared to the neat sample.
Parametric study showed that; the most important parameter affecting hardness
and tensile strength are the mixing time and reinforcement ratio, respectively.
