Structural residual stresses in oriented glass-reinforced plastics

  • 12 Accesses


A previously proposed method is used to obtain expressions for calculating the residual stresses as a function of the physicomechanical properties of the polymer matrix and the reinforcement ratio. The calculation results are presented and the corresponding state of stress and strain analyzed. There are considerable deviations (in the magnitude and distribution of the stresses) from models that neglect or only take partly into account the interaction of the fibers.
