Abstract: This study relates the incorporation effect of a natural organic load (date core’s pellets) in a laminated composite woven containing methyl methacrylate of orthopedic use. The goal of this research was the improvement of the existing product used as human prosthesis tibiale which presents failures in the form of microfissurings, of transverse cracks and a delamination on the layers level. This consists to implement a new hybrid composite with reinforcement fiber glass and particles of date cores. A characterization was carried out by varying the number of folds on the level of the initial orthopedic composite to know the sequence influence stacking on the mechanical behavior. Another characterization is carried out on the new hybrid composite. Within the framework of this approach, a comparative results study obtained of the stress intensity factors shows a significant increase in the mechanical characteristics and highlights the mechanical resistance improvement of the new laminate. This research was first experiment incorporation of this granulated kind in a polymeric matrix for the manufacture orthopedic composite used and open prospects to other applications hybrid composite.
