Abstract:

By subjecting thin filament wound internal pressure vessels to repeated loads with different rates of loading, load ranges, and duration of peak loads we conclude that the principle factor involved in the fatiguing of the vessels is the total duration under load. The life of a vessel under cyclic loading is about the same as might be expected were the vessel to be held at the maximum load until failure through static fatigue. An explanation for this behavior is made qualitatively by examining the accoustical behavior of a vessel under repeated loading. Author
