The failure of polymer matrix composites upon exposure to the environment has been assessed in the present study. In order to investigate the combined action of temperature, humidity and UV radiation on polymers and composites, an environmental ageing chamber has been constructed and tested. The accelerated environmental ageing was based on two kinds of alternating cycles, which provided humidity, temperature and ultraviolet radiation. The materials examined were isophthalic polyester and… CONTINUE READING
