Abstract : The results from a study of the mechanical properties of certain reinforced plastics are presented. The study was confined to oriented glass plastics and glass plastics in conditions of elevated temperatures (293--573K). Graphs are presented showing: (1) the variation of the relative tensile strength of the glass plastics as a function of temperature; (2) the variation of the tensile modulus of elasticity with temperature; (3) the variation of the relative compressive strength with temperature; and (4) the variation of the relative impact strength with temperature. It was found that the strength characteristics in compression and the impact strength are more temperature dependent than the tensile characteristics. Compression strength becomes stable at about 373K, and tensile strength becomes stable at around 423K.
