Resistance of wound glass-reinforced plastics to failure by unwinding

  • 12 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The debonding of wound glass-reinforced plastics is examined from the statistical standpoint. The statistical stress intensity distribution function characterizing the fracture toughness is obtained. The effect of defect size on the critical nominal stresses is discussed.
