Abstract : Material properties were determined for fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs) with respect to all three material orientations using existing ASTM standards when applicable. The in-plane and out-of-plane material properties include; shear strength, shear modulus, compressive strength, compressive modulus, tensile strength, tensile modulus, and Poisson's ratio. Parameters included in this study include the resin and fiber composition, the nominal thickness of the composite plate, and the test temperature. The three material compositions were; (1) Huntsman PolyUrethane (PU) Rencast 6405 with S-2 Glass fibers, (2) Applied Poleramic (API) SC-15 Epoxy with S-2 Glass fibers, and (3) Huntsman PU Rencast 6405 with Ductile Hybrid Fabric. The nominal thickness were; 1.91 cm., 2.54 cm., and 3.81 cm. The nominal test temperatures were -40 deg C, 21 deg C (ambient), and 60 deg C.
