The eﬀect of hygrothermal aging on quasi-static and fatigue bending behaviors of this new composite Residual strength has been studied in this work. Once hygrothermal aging is completed, ﬂexural quasi-static tests have been Damage mechanisms performed on aged specimens and results compared with those obtained from unaged specimens. It has been Natural ﬁber composite observed that hygrothermal aging has no signiﬁcant eﬀect on ﬂexural mechanical properties
