This paper discusses an examination of aging degradation of mechanical performance of composite insulators, and also describes useful approaches for analyzing their long term performance so as to develop reliable composite insulators. The static load time test data are examined by Weibull distribution for their capability of pressuming long term performance. Degradation of mechanical strength and the behaviour of FRP rod are also analyzed by the acoustic emission method. In addition the cyclic load tests are …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
