Standard Test Method for Preparation and Tension Testing of Filament-Wound Pressure Vessels
|Publication Date:||9 September 1968|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the apparent tensile parameters of filament-wound pressure vessels. The tensile parameters are predicted on defined conditions of geometry, fabrication, and test. This test method also describes the details necessary to wind either inplane or helical winding patterns. The two general procedures used in preparing the specimens are:
Procedure A, winding on a washout-type mandrel, and
Procedure B, winding on a rubber-lined steel mandrel.
1.2 Both procedures have been used successfully for design data generation and quality control by various agencies.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
