Abstract : Studies have been initiated on the strength characterization of fiber reinforced composite materials. An analytical and experimental program has been developed to examine two aspects of composite mechanical behavior: strength criteria under combined loading; and generalized stress-strain relations for inelastic response. In both cases, time (or rate) and temperature dependence of the behavior is included. included. (P.S.-PL)
