Influence of the Axial Inserted Yarns on the Mechanical Properties of Multi-Angled Filament Wound Pipes
The relationship between the axial inserted yarns and the mechanical properties of the multi-angled filament wound pipes was studied by experimental investigation in this paper. Firstly, the glassfiber/epoxy pipes with different process parameters were fabricated on the specially-designed filament winding equipment under varying conditions. Then the specimens were made in terms of standard sizes and tested under axial tensile load and axial compressive load, respectively. Furthermore, the axial tensile strength and the axial compressive strength were obtained from the test data, which showed that the above two values of the specimens with the axial yarns were larger than that without the axial yarns. That is to say, the incorporation of the axial reinforcement was found to result in increased strength.
