Abstract:

The report discusses the results of a program to develop physical testing methods for fiber glass reinforced-epoxy plastic composite materials. Five test methods--four-point loaded flexure flat specimen axial compression flat and tubular specimens three-point loaded panel shear tubular specimen and torsional panel shear tubular specimen--were evaluated from an engineering standpoint. These five methods were evaluated with respect to filament reinforced plastics with filaments at various orientations. Author
