Abstract:

A new approach is proposed for the calculation of voids in glass reinforced plastics. This approach takes into consideration experimental precision and available knowledge of the specific gravity of the materials used in the fabrication of glass reinforced plastics. Equations based on experimental data have been used as a basis for developing an equation to calculate void content. The technique herein presented gives non-negative void content values even on the more void-free composites. Author
