Fatigue strength of glass-reinforced plastics (GRP) in shear in the plane of reinforcement
The results of an investigation of the fatigue strength of three grades of glass-reinforced plastic are described. It is shown that cyclic loading with gradually increasing stress amplitude can be used to determine the fatigue strength at a given ambient temperature and loading frequency.
