Abstract: This research aims to study the tensile property of sansevieria cylindrica reinforced biochar tailored vinyl ester composite (SCBVC) using non-linear regression model, and theoretical model with the empirical tensile properties. Biochar is a carbon rich material produced from the biomass during slow pyrolysis process. In our research wood waste was used to prepare a biochar and influence of biochar particulate loading on the tensile property of the sansevieria cylindrica reinforced vinyl ester composite was studied. Biochar loading up to 6 wt. % showed an increase in tensile properties beyond which tensile properties tends to decrease due to agglomeration of biochar particulate. Empirical results were in good correlation with the theoretical models. SEM micrographs showed the failure mechanism of the tensile tested SCBVC.
