Abstract:

Experimental results of bundle tests of single-end glass, with and without epoxy resin, are compared with the predictions of statistical theories based on the normal and Weibull distributions. The effect of gage lengths varying from 1 to 20 inches is also investigated. Based on the results, bundle tests may be considered for the determination of the strength and the coefficient of variations of monofilaments, as well as the axial strength of unidirectional composites.
