This article focuses on various thermal analysis techniques that are used to verify the cure of a polymer composite. The techniques include differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), modulated DSC, thermomechanical analysis, dynamic mechanical analysis, and dielectric analysis. The article also provides an overview of composite failure modes affected by matrix resin and testing approach.
