Abstract : Data are presented on the long term strength of chopped strand mat glass reinforced polyester resin in water under both static and fatigue loading. The results may be described by a single semi-empirical equation which may be useful for long term extrapolation, but detailed understanding of the failure mechanism will require further study.
