Abstract : This study represents a continuation of work to determine the mechanism of stress corrosion controlled failure of glass filaments under tensile, static fatigue or other loading conditions. Glass filaments were prepared from six modified E-glasses and compared with standard E-glass. Tensile and static fatigue tests wre performed in air and liquids of different pH. Tests were made at different strain rates and temperatures to determine time-and temperature-dependence the steess corrosion process. (Author, modified-PL)
