Review of Soviet/Russian Literature on Residual Stress Development in Filament-Wound Polymer-Matrix Composites

Report No. ARL-TR-3191
Authors: Eric D. Wetzel and Scott R. White

Abstract: This report provides a review of select Soviet and Russian (S/R) literature, from the mid 1960s to the mid 1990s, related to residual stresses in wound composite articles. Through a compilation of S/R review articles, a historical overview of the development of this S/R knowledge base is first provided. This overview is then followed by detailed compilations of the following topics: experimental measurement of residual stress development in wound composites, cure shrinkage in neat polymers, residual microstress development, modeling residual macrostress development, and manufacturing methods for controlling residual macrostresses in wound composites. This study, though not a comprehensive review of S/R residual stress literature, provides a general survey which should prove useful for identifying published sources of S/R technical expertise.
