Characterization and Failure Analysis of Plastics
This article describes the mechanisms of moisture-induced damage in polymeric materials, covering the characteristics of important structural plastics; the effects of moisture on glass transition temperature, modulus, creep, and stress relaxation of plastic materials; and moisture-induced fatigue failure in composites. The effect of moisture on the mechanical properties of thermoset resins and thermoplastics are also discussed.
