Abstract : The handling and processing factors that affect the ultimate performance of glass filament and resins in highly stressed filament-wound motor cases are being studied. These studies will include the development of optimum procedures for the forming, processing, and handling of the glass filament, as well as documented, optimized, contolled, resin-impregnation techniques. The establishment of reliable test data and test methods with good correlation to actual performance with filament-wound motor cases will also be evaluated. The target requirement in this program will be to raise the ultimate tensile strength (glass stress) from 280,000 psi to a minimum of 375,000 psi and to maintain at least 75% of the original room-temperature strength at 300 F.
