The tensile properties of isotropic and orthotropic fiber-reinforced plastic composites may be determined using the test methods specified in ISO 527-4. Typical reinforcement materials include glass fibers, carbon fibers, aramid fibers and other similar fibers. The properties typically desired from these materials include ultimate strength, strain at failure, and in some cases, Poisson's Ratio.
