The automotive and construction industries are actively involved in substituting natural fibre composites (NFCs) for other engineering materials in motor vehicles and buildings. In this work, emphasis has been placed on evaluating agave fibre composites containing well aligned, closely packed straight fibre bundles and focussing on the development of different types of practical joints for NFCs in composite structures. Two novel co-cured joints were proposed and evaluated, based on laminated and intermingled configurations.
