Abstract : This is the third of a series of bimonthly reports describing the technical progress in an investigation conducted to determine the effect of various hydrostatic-test parameters on the structural integrity of filament-wound chambers. This report describes some of the results obtained from hydrostatically testing continuousfilament spheroids to burst. Pressurization rates of 10, 100, and 1000 psi/sec were used; burst pressures were found to be sensitive to the rate of pressurization. (Author)
