Abstract:

A program of static fatigue tests on single filaments of E-glass is underway. Presently, tests at room temperature and normal humidity are nearly completed and these data are being analyzed. Static fatigue, or delayed failure, occurs under such conditions at stress levels as low as 200,000 psi and a fatigue limit, if one exists, has not yet been determined. Tests at liquid nitrogen temperature and in an active desiccant at room temperature will follow the present series.
