A systematic investigation was made of test methods for the effects of such variables as different materials, processing conditions, design considerations, and environment on the mechanical properties and behavior of filament-wound structural components. The specimens consisted of wound rings, cylinders, and cylindrical pressure vessels, and the tests included unidirectional and biaxial tension, compression, shear, and bending. The accuracy and usefulness of eight different tests are assessed and representative experimental data are presented. The specimens and testing jigs are illustrated and described.
