PAULINA SPANU, CATALIN GHEORGHE AMZA, BOGDAN FELICIAN ABAZA STUDY REGARDING THE COMPRESSIVE PROPERTIES OF GLASS FIBER REINFORCED COMPOSITES Compressive strength of the polymeric composites is an important data for design of composite structures and therefore a depth study of this mechanical property is imperative. The mechanical properties of the polymer composites vary in the very large ranges according to the characteristics of the constituents, to their proportions and many other factors. Compressive property and failure mechanism of polymer composite materials reinforced with glass fiber were investigated in this paper. The experimental data for the studied materials were included the compressive strength, strain, poissonís ratio and modulus. Some of these experimental values could be affected by aberrant errors. This paper also presents an application that removes the experimental data affected by gross errors from the sample of numerical values. The elimination of experimental data affected by gross errors is based on Chauvenet criterion.
