Abstract

The lifetime distribution of glass fibre subject to permanent environmental stress corrosion is very important for assessing the durability and damage tolerance of composites using glass reinforcement. A mechanical model based on the statistics of flaw spectra during stress corrosion and 3D shear lag model is presented. The proposed approach shows that it is possible to identify the influence of stress corrosion properties on the long term durability of glass fibre reinforced composites (GFRP).
