The stressed state and certain fracture characteristics of glass-reinforced plastics loaded in tension at an angle to the direction of reinforcement

The stressed state of glass-reinforced plastic specimens with various structures is investigated experimentally in the case of tensile loads acting at 45° to the direction of reinforcement. A relation is established between the stress distribution over the cross section and the “scale factor” associated with the relative width of the understressed zones along the edges of the specimen. The fracture characteristics of GRP specimens with different structures are analyzed. Recommendations are given for testing GRP with different structures in tension at an angle of 45° to the direction of reinforcement.
