An experimental investigation of the effect of the rate of deformation on the strength and modulus of elasticity of vinyl plastic and glass-reinforced laminate is described. It is established that when the rate of relative tensile deformation of vinyl plastic at 25°C is reduced from 2000×10−6 sec−1 to 5×10−6 sec−1, and that for glass-reinforced laminate from 1000×10−6 sec−1 to 1.3×10−6 sec−1, the decrease in the modulus of elasticity is about 40% and the decrease in ultimate strength 30 and 48%, as the case may be.
