Some mechanical properties of film-reinforced plastics

Model cylindrical shells have been wound from glass and Dacron (Mylar) film strip in accordance with a technique developed by the authors. A layer of glass-reinforced plastic, oriented in the direction of the circumferential tensile stresses, was applied to the outer cylindrical surface of the shells. Certain mechanical properties of the film plastics and their ability to cooperate with the glass-reinforced plastic outer layer were investigated by subjecting the shells to internal liquid pressure. The possibility of obtaining impermeable shells, equally strong in the axial and circumferential directions, was confirmed.
