Abstract : A technique was developed to make model test composites with one or more monofilaments embedded in resin in preferred orientations. Using polarized light, strain was observed in the resin resulting from cure, particularly at the ends of fibers and between adjacent fibers. Monofilaments of Pyrex 7740 composition were formed by pulling from the end of a rod of this glass, rotated inAN OXYGEN-HYDROGEN FLAME. Epon 820 resin, manufactured by Shell Chemical Company, was used with the shell curing agent Z. (Author)
