Abstract

Fibres obtained from different parts of the oil palm tree (Elaeis guineensis) have been under investigation for possible use in construction. Studies have been carried out investigating the engineering properties and possible applications of these fibres. However, the experimental methods employed and the values of mechanical and physical properties recorded by various authors are inconsistent. It has therefore become necessary to organise information which would be useful in the design of oil palm fibre cement composites and help researchers and engineers make informed decisions in further research and application. This review provides information about fibres from different parts of the oil palm, their properties, enhancement techniques, current and potential application in cement composites.
