Zero stress aging of glass and carbon fibers in water and oil : strength reduction explained by dissolution kinetics

Andreas T. Echtermeyer, Andrey E. Krauklis, Abedin I. Gagani & Erik Sæter
Understanding the strength degradation of glass and carbon fibers due to exposure to liquids over time is important for structural applications. A model has been developed for glass fibers that links the strength reduction in water to the increase of the Griffith flaw size of the fibers. The speed of the increase is determined by regular chemical dissolution kinetics of glass in water. Crack growth and strength reduction can be predicted for several water temperatures...
