Durability of structures of polymer composites affected by static loads and climatic factors

  • 27 Accesses


We suggested a model of predicting residual strength and durability of structures of CP, jointly acted upon by static loads and environmental factors, by the use of data on short-time and long-time strength obtained under laboratory conditions and of the results of residual strength in “aging” without load. The methods of accelerated laboratory tests devised for studying the climatic stability of PFC in “aging” without load cannot be quantitatively applied to the investigation of “aging” under load.
