Stresses in plastics reinforced with anisotropic fibers and subjected to transverse normal loading

  • 16 Accesses

Abstract

The question of the stress distribution in plastics reinforced with anisotropic fibers and subjected to transverse normal loading is considered. The stresses in the components are determined by the methods of the theory of elasticity using stress functions. The theoretical relations obtained are used to construct diagrams showing the distribution of the tangential, radial, and shear stresses in the composite and the isoclines of the concentration coefficient for a carbon-reinforced plastic. The results obtained for the carbon-reinforced plastic are compared with the analogous results for a glass-reinforced plastic.
