MetadataShow full item record
An experimental procedure is presented for lifetime testing of graphite bundles under constant load. The attributes of the experiment are expedience in implementation and a substantial accumulation of information equivalent to a large number of single filament tests. To achieve the objectives of the experiment a specially adapted Instron machine was used with a digital process/controller. Two trial tests were conducted using Hercules high strength graphite. The preliminary results are presented and the effects of inter-fiber friction evaluated.
