    Abstract

    Many rubber products are reinforced with glass fibers to give dimensional stability, high modulus, and good fatigue life. To understand failure of these products, it is essential to understand the failure and strength degradation mechanisms of the reinforcing glass multifilament bundles. An empirical model has been developed to predict fast fracture and time-dependent failure of these bundles using the global load sharing approximation. The model is based on the statistical strength distribution of glass fibers, fracture mechanics of glass, and nonlinear stress distribution between individual fibers owing to sliding resistance of matrix. The model was also used to predict the residual strength of the bundle as a function of load and time.
