Abstract:

Tentative te st methods are presented for evaluating the tension, compressionflexure, and shear behavior of boron epoxy composites. The report includes theresults of fairly extensive studies of the influence of specimen geometry andexperimental techniques. Limited information is also presented concerning thethermoelastic response of nominal 50 volume percent boron laminates. Comparisonsare made of data obtained using sandwich beam experiments and coupon testspecimens. Author-PL
