Abstract:

As a follow-on to a composite structural armor development program, a mechanical testing program for the composite materials was carried out. The composites are thick laminates of glass fabric and polyester resin. The tests used were flexure, tension, and compression. Because of the laminate thickness, redesign of the standard test specimens was necessary. The test results provide a characterization of the materials.
