Abstract : Sets of glass-reinforced epoxy and polyester panels, both coated and uncoated, were exposed at China Lake and Port Hueneme, California, and at Kwajalein, Marshall Islands; a fourth set was maintained as a control. Results of physical tests of panels exposed at the three field locations and results of the same tests on control panels are reported. Comparisons of the mean and standard deviations of the tensile strength, compressive strength, flexural strength and flexural modulus of elasticity of the panels are presented. Weather data for the exposure sites are also presented. (Author)
