EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE AND MOISTURE ON COMPOSITE MATERIAL 2 Effect of Temperature and Moisture on Composite Materials Composite materials are formed by merging two or more materials which in most cases have different properties. According to Li [6], composite materials composes of two or more mechanically separable and physically distinct components referred to as matrix and reinforcement that help preserve their structure. Nevertheless, composite materials are significantly affected various environmental elements such as temperature and moisture [6]. Multiple studies have been done on how the presence of temperature and moisture affects composite materials. According to Lai, Botsis, Cugnoni, and Coric [5], moisture absorption damages the physical and mechanical properties of various polymers. The authors did a study on a single fiber composite and showed that both moisture and heat transfer affects the absorption capabilities of different polymers [5]. Moreover, Mizera, Herak, Hrabe, and Kabutey [1], also claim that the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
