Different mathematical models of long-term fatigue strength of long-rod insulators were evaluated by studying the effects of superimposed cyclic and constant loads. It has been shown that the strength of composite insulators can well be represented by the power type behavior of the fatigue characteristics and that the time to fatigue failure of a composite… CONTINUE READING
