Abstract : The effect of glass fiber from on the strength of reinforced plastic composites was studied analytically. Results indicate that hollow glass fiber composites produce lower weight structures than equivalent solid glass fiber composites for applications where compressive strength or stability is the governing design criterion. Compressive and tensile applications were considered and the results of an approximate solution for the internal stresses in the vicinity of a discontinuous fiber are presented. (Author)
