Abstract:

Recent advances and remaining problems in the study of filament-wound glass reinforcing plastics are reviewed. Areas considered are fatigue studies, shear and tensile cracking, equal tensioning of fibers, port reinforcement, lay-up patterns, moisture effects, fiber properties, mechanical damage, and effects of porosity or bubbles in the resin. Emphasis is given to application to shells for manned deep submergence vehicles.
