Abstract : A study was made to determine the mechanical behavior of boron-epoxy and S-glass-epoxy filament-wound cylinders under tensile, compressive, torsional, and pressure loads. These cylinders were fabricated in either an orthotropic winding pattern or an isotropic pattern. Conventional theory used to predict the elastic behavior of glass-epoxy filament-wound cylinders was discovered to be equally adequate for the boron-epoxy cylinders. Attempts to correlate cylinder failure strengths calculated from existing state-of-the-art theories with experimental failure strengths met with varying success.
