Abstract:

An apparatus to enable the evaluation of the compressive and tensile properties of filament wound plastic composite specimens, in the form of rings or sections of cylinders, by external or internal hydrostatic radial pressure respectively, has been designed and constructed. Exploratory external pressure tests have been conducted on thick walled steel rings, for purposes of calibration, with good results. Some diff culty has been encountered with pressure seals at high hydrostatic pressures and steps are being taken to correct deficiencies. Author
