Abstract : Physical and mechanical tests were made with material taken from 9 inches inside diameter, 17 inches long, 0.310 inch wall thickness filament-wound fiberglas cylinders. Each cylinder consisted of seven laminations: four were in the longitudinal direction and were about 0.036-inch thick, and three were circumferential and about 0.060 inch thick. Filament winding was done with 60 end fiberglas roving stock and the binder used was Vibrin 135 TAC polyester resin. The properties determined were as follows: tension, compression, shear, flexural, and bearing str ngths; specific gravity; resin content; and water absorption. (Author)
