Composite tubes, consisting of a graphite liner confined in an aluminum sleeve, were subjected to hydrostatic burst tests at room temperature. The pressure at which the graphite liner failed is increased significantly by the reinforcing sleeve. The results are compared with a theoretical expression based on strength of material considerations.
