Abstract : A number of collimation tests were made on various production strands and roving, and the test data are tabulated. Continued work on singlefilament pull-out tests is reported and the developed test procedures are described. Biaxial tests on Scotchply fiber glass composites are described. The test specimens in the maltese cross configuration are described along with the test procedure. Some surprising strength and stress-strain data are reported, and future tests to explain the data are outlined. (Author)
