Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structures Congress XII


This paper discusses experimental and analytical aspects of the long-time behavior of filament wound E-glass fiber reinforced epoxy-box-beams. Theoretical and experimental data are compared and show good agreement. The long-time static and fatigue loading performance of these beams is excellent.
