Abstract:

In this report, a summary is given of the engineering properties of chopped fiber reinforced sheet molding compounds and of the effects of service environment on these properties. The properties surveyed include tensile strength and modulus, compression strength and modulus, shear strength and modulus, flexural strength and modulus, notch sensitivity, fatigue, creep, vibration damping, response to dynamic impact, moisture absorption characteristics and thermal expansion. The basic properties of adhesive bonded single lap joints are also included in this survey.
