Abstract

Geometrical properties of hollow and solid glass fibers used for composite reinforcement have been compared as well as the possibility of filling the hollow fibers with fluids. Composite sheets were prepared from epoxy resin reinforced with hollow and solid glass fibers. Mechanical properties were compared by tensile, flexural, compression and Charpy impact tests. It has been observed that the specific strength (the strength divided by the density) was higher for hollow fiber reinforced systems than for solid fiber reinforced ones.
