Title:Microscopic study of mode of fracture in filament wound glass resin composites
Author(s):Bouc, Charles Anton
Glass-resin Composites
Abstract:Filament wound glass-resin specimens were successfully developed to approximately simulate a typical filament wound composite such as found in pressure vessels and fuel tanks. During tensile loading, each specimen was carefully scanned thru a microscope at a magnification of x200, and a written and photographic record was made of the progress of the fracture phenomena. The information thus obtained was synthesized into identification of five different microscopic modes of fracture. The origin and nature of these different fracture modes was investigated with the aid of microphotographs, and their contribution to the progressive and ultimate fracture of the specimens determined.
