Abstract : The state of the art in failure mechanisms of glass-resin composites is summarized, analyzed and advanced. A new theory is presented to correlate existing data. In Appendix A, the value of flat-sided rectangular microtape as a strain-measuring device is considered and pictures of photoelastic studies on castings are presented. In Appendix B, the effects on castings of shrinkage and external loading are analyzed. jg p4
