PAULINA SPANU, CATALIN GHEORGHE AMZA, GABRIELA DINU STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF SOME MECHANICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF GLASS FIBER REINFORCED COMPOSITES This paper presents the results of the experimental researches obtained in the three-point test of the glass-fiber-reinforced polymeric composites. Mathematical modeling of experimental results was performed using a virtual instrument (VI) developed in the graphical programming language called LabVIEW. In order to process the experimental data and display the results, the virtual instrument (VI) allows both the reading of experimental data from a saved text file from the same folder as the current VI file and the direct entry of experimental values into a control element disposed on its front panel. The virtual instrument described in this article is part of a more complex project used for the mathematical modeling of the experimental data obtained in determining the physic-mechanical characteristics of glass fiber randomly reinforced polymeric composites.
