Abstract : Results are presented of studies of the resistance of reinforced and unreinforced structural plastics to static and fatigue failure. Attention is devoted to the formation and development of brittle fracture of plexiglas and polystyrene with account for the role of the residual stresses, the deformation and fracture of glass reinforced plastics under static and low-cycle loads, and also fatigue processes in connection with energy dissipation and the fracture condition temporal relationships. The use of the relations governing the resistance of plastics to deformation and fracture for evaluating the strength of structural elements is examined. The book is intended for design engineers, factory laboratory personnel, scientific research workers, and the design institutes. (Author-PL)
