Abstract : A theoretical solution of the problem of strength in glass-reinforced plastics is derived. The ultimate tensile strength values are distributed in the yarn according to the normal distribution law. Exact equations for the load distribution between and along the fibers are derived. The distance from the fiber defect to the place at which the ruptured fiber carries the same load as the integral fiber is represented by several fiber diams. in the usual glass cloth laminates, where the fiber distance is up to 1 fiber diam. An expression for the ultimate normal and tangential stresses carried by the resin near the fiber defect was derived. (Author)
