The Manufacture, Characterization and Aging of Novel High Temperature Carbon Fibre Composites.

Fox, Bronwyn Louise

Description

High temperature composite materials used in aerospace applications are exposed to extremely harsh conditions and must be able to withstand moisture and extremes of temperature. This thesis has examined the effect of isothermal aging on two high temperature composite materials, a novel CSIRO composite and a commercial composite, both based on bismaleimides. Changes in mechanical properties and resin chemistry at two different temperatures were measured in order to assess the validity of...[Show more]

This thesis has examined the effect of isothermal aging on two high temperature composite materials, a novel CSIRO composite and a commercial composite, both based on bismaleimides. Changes in mechanical properties and resin chemistry at two different temperatures were measured in order to assess the validity of accelerated aging tests. ¶ ...
